Hometown of the famous “Nutella” and known for the International White Truffle Fair, Alba deserves to be seen with a local expert. Learn how to recognize real truffle condiments from artificially flavored ones and get a full understanding of the local culinary scene.

Excellent tour guide and selection of gastronomy specialties. Everything was well organized, we never had to wait when we arrived at each place. The rice with mushrooms and black truffle was superlative. I’m personally not a big fan of beef tartare so the guide recommended the vegetarian option with vegetables and cheese fondue. We found the tour to have the right balance between history and the tasting part so three hours flew by quickly and it was never boring.

The food tour in Alba begins with a deep presentation of the region and its ingredients which are strictly connected to the geographical position.

The Piedmont region of Italy proudly offers a unique cuisine which combines farmer’s traditions with an aristocratic touch. After a look to the open-air market (when available), partake on a tasting of the most representative cheese of the region. From raw milk cheese, to goat and sheep, the food tour in Alba takes you on a journey throughout Piedmont.

Stop in an old-fashioned bakery to learn stories about the crunchy breadsticks, aka “grissini“.

The food tour in Alba is a pleasant walk through the elegant town center with a look to historical sites and some art, while talking about the local culinary scene.

In a truffle shop run by a family of truffle hunters, we get familiar with truffle condiments, spreads and truffle oil learning how to recognize high quality jars from artificially flavored junk. A few bites of truffle salami and truffle cheese prepare our mouth for either a pasta course (tajarin) or a risotto served with freshly shaved black truffles and a glass of wine.

Our selection of tastings continues in the cozy store of a local producer of salami and cured meats such as the traditional boiled salami. Then, sit down to experience what an Italian trattoria is like. Enjoy a choice of traditional “antipasti” or local egg noodles called tajarin. For the bravest ones, the unparalleled beef tartare of Piedmont can be enjoyed with a glass of wine.

The food tour in Alba ends with a tasting of hazelnut and chocolate delicacies from a selected pastry shop with the best coffee in town. In summer, a gelato is everyone’s favorite.
