Re: new year celebration

News from www.comune.torino.it/en/ :

"To bid farewell to 2008 and welcome the New Year, everyone has the chance to celebrate together in Piazza Vittorio Veneto.

A DJ set will start off the entertainment at 10.30 p.m. on the stage erected between Via Bava and the Po, with artists and acrobats performing from 11.00 p.m., followed by the traditional midnight toast and fireworks over the Po."

Typical Piedmontese Food - "Bagna Cauda"

by ant1606

If you visit Turin and Piedmont you should definitely try this delicious dish.
"Bagna Cauda" - pronounced "bah-nha-cah-uh-dah" - is probably the top ranking dish in the region during fall or winter.
The term is in local dialect and it means "Hot Sauce". Needless to say, this sauce itself is not a dish if not accompanied by fresh and boiled vegetables of various kind, mushrooms, meat and other food dictated by the cook's fantasy or seasonal availability.
I never heard of any Piedmontese mom not preparing this dish, which is normally meant to drag a goo dnumber of people around a colorful table. The rule of "Bagna Cauda", as I heard from mom and grandma, is "the more the quantity to be made, the better it tastes". Maybe there's a real reason beyond this statement, or maybe it's just meant to arrange large parties of hugnry people.
The sauce itself is made with very simple basic ingredients which are garlic and salty anchivies. Olive oil helps to blend. That's it. Some variations include the addition of some milk or cream. A perfect result completely depends on the cook's ability, therefore training is something passed on from one generation to the next.
The sauce is generally presented in the middle of the table in a terracotta pot, heated underneath, from which guests take their share into individual cups.
Piedmontese red wine is the obvious fluid to wash it down.
Some restaurants have this dish on their menu, but a totally different thing would be to have dinner at local friends' home....for the typical joyful ambience "Bagna Cauda" creates....and for everybody smells pure garlic!

Cafe Baratti & Milano

by sylina

The most famous Cafe in Torino.. locates in Galleria Subalpina near Piazza Castello. The place itself is very beautiful.. worth a visit.. Baratti & Milano is wellknown for their fine coffee, delicious afternoon snacks and delicate finger foods.. I bought some chocolate bars with hazelnuts there.. about 4 euros.. yum yum.. :)

"You will find this treasure near the entrance to the Galleria dell'Industria Subalpina under the arches of Piazza Castello. An old confectionery, it was opened in 1873 by partners Milano and Baratti who soon gained the title of 'suppliers to the royal household'. It is almost a ritual here to have tea or hot chocolate accompanied by an assortment of Bignole, sweet pastry cases filled with Zabaglione, vanilla, chocolate or hazelnut, all with a glazed topping. The bronze bas-reliefs on the façade, the brass clock, the large mirrors, and the lamps date back to the shop's refurbishment in 1909. "

Getting around Turin

by stephenshephard

Turin has a an extensive tram network. So extensive that it can be quite difficult to work out which trams you need to use and where you should change. There are maps at major tram stops and also available for download at the website linked here (go to the download section).

Grilled Polenta --- food as art

by iris2002 about Il Ciacolon

Il Ciacolon, a wonderful artsy restaurant, where the walls are covered with paintings, and the ceilings are painted like the sky. The name literally means those that talk a lot, which is certainly apropos for whenever the four of us get together. The cozy atmosphere, as well as the extensive antipasti table with over 25 items, encourages guests to linger and talk, before proceeding on to ordering other courses. pasta e fasoi (pasta and bean soup)

and their website is too funny - bit "Monty Python" style haha..
