Discover Alba like a foodie! Our tour guide provides an engaging and informative walking tour of the town center of Alba with five food tastings along the way and exceed your lunch needs. Come hungry and curious!
Hometown of the famous “Nutella” and known for the International White Truffle Fair, Alba is a wealth of stories and gems that are hidden to the hurried glance: our tour guide will bring them up to life while introducing you to the local culinary scene.
From Piazza Garibaldi our walk takes you through the open-air market (when available) and it will include a cheese tasting in a traditional shop which showcases selected cheese producers from the region: goat and sheep milk, raw milk, aged cheese and more. Stop in an old-fashioned bakery to learn stories about the traditional breadsticks or “grissini“.
Later, sit in a bistrot where locals go, to savor two of the most traditional starters or “antipasti“.
In a truffle shop run by a family of truffle hunters, partake in a tasting of condiments and spreads made of truffles; salami, cheese, honey, olive oil enriched with local truffles. A pasta course (tajarin) or risotto is served with freshly shaved black truffles and a glass of wine.
Our selection of tastings continues in the cozy store of a local producer specialized in salami and cured meats such as the traditional boiled salami. Alternatively, enjoy another typical recipe in a restaurant of the town center of Alba.
Make sure to save some room for the final hazelnut pastries and chocolate truffles.
Tastings order and recipes can change depending on availability.
