Only In Piedmont

Five great things to get excited about in this beautiful region


« Prev Next » 3 of 8

Pasta is the road map of Italy. If you're eating Plin, those tiny little tortellini, you must be in Piedmont, and if you’re eating Tajarin, the hand cut local version of tagliolini, you're still in Piedmont but you might as well be at the Trattoria Antica Torre in the village of Barbaresco, famous for their Tajarin and with a website worthy of a restaurant that needs little promotion. It’s just a business card!

Tajarin are not only handcut, but they're also made with a very egg rich pasta dough that produces a particularly toothsome yet silky style of pasta. Typically paired with a light ragu and a dusting of cheese, Tajarin is one of the joys of pasta. Perfect for pairing with a nice mature Barbaresco, it's a pasta dish I dream about.
