Renowned products such as Carmagnola pepper, purple potato and trout or niche products such as Stupinigi red celery, Cerrato d’Asti tomato and rose syrup at the fore.

This year Parks to be enjoyed will also highlight and give visibility to local producers who, with expert hands, preserve and cultivate traditional raw materials that then skilled cooks transform into simple, but tasty recipes or delicious and elaborate dishes.

But having nature at heart also means limiting waste. For this reason, as every year, in the premises adhering to the initiative, customers can ask the restaurateur for the practical eco-box "Avanzo & Mangio"(leftover and eat) to bring home what is left in the dish.
