Your experience

    Welcome to my home in the heart of Turin, where you will be welcomed for a unique dining experience inspired by the Piedmontese tradition of the merenda sinoira. This cold meal, usually eaten around 5 p.m. and extended until dinnertime, is considered the mother of all apericena in the world!

    I will guide you through a selection of traditional dishes prepared with high-quality local ingredients, such as cured meats and cheeses typical of the region, accompanied by freshly baked bread and breadsticks. I will also show you how to prepare some of the dishes, so that you can take home with you the techniques and recipes to replicate this unique experience. I look forward to a special evening of tasting and great company in the heart of Turin.

    This was a wonderful experience. Food was delicious and Benedetta was great and her family was there too. We felt like part of the family! Highly recommend!

    Me and my dad had a great experience. The family was very welcoming. We did the pasta class and had a great time learning how to do everything and then make our own pasta and dessert as well. The food that was created was absolutely delicious. The family was very friendly and made great conversations with us.

    A experiência com Benedetta foi maravilhosa, aprendemos a fazer massa fresca e Tiramisù, ambos deliciosos. Além da comida que fizemos, ainda provamos várias entradinhas típicas oferecidas por ela! Benedetta é muito simpática e nos fez sentir em casa. Recomendo fortemente!!

    Cesarina from 2018Location: Turin    Languages: Italian, French, English
    Seductive, regal and a little French. There is always something to do in Turin: from the “Mole” to Venaria, from chocolate treats to a special dinner at Benedetta's house. Our Cesarina nurtures a passion for the culinary art, having enjoyed good food from an early age with her traditional recipes of Piedmont, prepared with fresh produce from the local markets. Simplicity, a light touch and excellent ingredients are fundamental elements in her kitchen. She also loves combining tradition with a touch of originality and innovation, thanks also to her passion (and profession) for art and design.
