Year after year we return to Piemonte. Most of the time has been spent in the Langhe area, staying in the hill top towns of Monforte d’Alba or La Morra but this year we thought we should be adventurous and stay in a different area.
Piemonte (Piedmont in English) is home of the slow food movement, an area of fabulous, locally produced food and wine with some of the best restaurants in Italy.
After leaving Turin, we had one important stop to make before heading east.
We could not drive past Canale without stopping for lunch at our favourite restaurant “All’Enoteca”.
On the edge of the arcaded town of Canale, Davide Palluda has created one of the best restaurants of Piemonte.
Through the pretty courtyard, past the Enoteca Regionale del Roero on the left, up the stairs and you are in the restaurant.
A selection of breads, nut grissini, saffron wafers, olive bread and foccacia is bought to the table as we read the menu. It all looks fabulous, so avoiding a decision, we choose the degustation menu.
A girl’s gotta try it all!!
A capsicum is presented for our first dish. Of course it’s not any old capsicum. This one has been reassembled with a mixture of anchovy and tuna with a capers sauce.
Now for dessert! There were two but I finished the peach gelatin with rasberries and yoghurt gelati before I realised I hadn’t taken a photo!
Davide Palluda had done it again!
