The Langa region is a true paradise for gourmands. The territory offers first class ingredients, that together with the familiar traditions handed down from generation to generation allow you to enjoy nowadays the authentic “Langa” dishes. Actually, in this area there are still many family run trattorie that defy the passage of time.
The egg pasta used to prepare the “tajarin” or “plin” ravioli is homemade and the precious veal meat from the “Province of Granda” (name of the province of Cuneo in local dialect) is the basis for the preparation of ancient recipes like hand chopped raw meat, cold veal with tuna sauce and braised meat. The simplest dishes are usually the most delicious and they look like they have been specially created to espouse the most precious autumnal ingredient, the Alba White Truffle, which will enhance their perfumes and tastes.
In fact the movement “Slow Food” was born in Bra (30 km away from Benevello), an association that “works to preserve the local cuisine, the traditional production, the animals or vegetables threatened with extinction and sustains a new model of agriculture, less intensive and cleaner” (www.slowfood.it)
The profusion of fine ingredients combined throughout the years to the creativity of new Chef generations, have brought international fame to the local gastronomy and turned this region into one of the Italian areas with the highest number of Michelin starred restaurants.
