There are not many places in the Northern hemisphere that exude such gastronomic excitement this time of year as Piedmont, Italy. Bordered on three sides by the Italian Alps, Piedmont is true to the meaning of its name (“at the foot of the mountains”). And while some would spend their winters skiing these slopes, we here at CCA would rather taste our way toward the New Year…after all its not long before those 2017 resolutions go into motion. This week on All the Swirl join us for an insider’s tour of Piedmont, Italy’s food and wine mecca.
Though we are still enjoying our Indian summer here in San Francisco, we all know that autumn is just around the corner. To revel in these vestiges of warm weather, and reminisce on a summer filled with great food, gastronomic adventures, and friends, the CCA team offers up our favorite vernal pairings.
