Tucked between France and Switzerland and nestled at the foot of the Alps sits the Italian region of Piemonte, or Piedmont. Vineyards dot the fertile land; locally produced fare fills the quaint village markets; and truffles—one of the world’s most expensive foods—have made the area a household name for gastronomes. In addition, the Slow Food movement, which honors the simple goodness of dishes prepared with regional in-season products, began here.

Last fall, Phoenix Home & Garden Executive Chef M. Allan Schanbacher traveled to Piemonte to experience the area’s flavors firsthand. Here and on the pages that follow, we present a travelogue of his impressions, photos from his trip and a market-to-table menu he created to reflect the essence of Piemonte’s passion for quality cuisine.
