A land of hills, vines, castles and villages, Piedmont Italy is famous for its rich, savoury cuisine and powerful, tannin-heavy Nebbiolo wines.

To celebrate the region, Cibo hosted a traditional family-style meal —  enjoyed by 24 guests on January 17th.

Piedmont sits at the foot of the Alps and literally translated, means “at the foot of the mountains.” Given Calgary’s shares a similar identity with its closeness to the Rockies, we thought the region of Piedmont would be a perfect fit for a winter celebration!

Guests enjoyed regional Piedmont cuisine like bagna cauda with winter vegetables, risotto al Barolo, bollito misto and hazelnut cake!
