The Porta Palazzo market, "Porta Pila" for the people of Turin, is perhaps the oldest market in the city. Located above the Roman icehouses, near the Porta Palatina, it has entered contemporary literature as the "larder of the city."

This market abounds with rare delicacies to discover and does so in a multi-ethnic context well expressed by Pistoletto's work "Love the difference" that covers its ancient Tettoia dell'Orologio. The tour that Alessio and I propose will take you to discover its secrets while chatting about food, traditions and history. We will be inspired by the stalls, think of a menu together, cook it and enjoy it together.

Overall the tour was great and was my first tour where I was the sole attendee. Sara and Alessio were very enthusiastic and showed me a number of places alongside the rich history that accompanies them. For their first tour, it was a lovely experience. With time, they shall be well rehearsed and develop a better relationship with the food stops to ensure a smooth experience. I highly recommend them both if you want to feel like a local with all the tips!

Tradition is an innovation that has brought us this far. Starting from the local raw materials, I transform them following both the lessons from my mother and grandmother and the techniques learned through studies and travels. For me, cooking is primarily about conviviality, sharing, and exchange... Always accompanied by a good glass of wine! I prefer first courses and baked goods, smoked meats, and recently I have been producing homemade cured meats. My favorite dish... It's the next one I'll have the opportunity to try!
