From today until Sunday 9th April, London’s specialty cicchetti restaurant and bar TOZI will feature a limited-edition menu inspired by the culinary delights of Italy’s Piedmont region. If you’ve been keeping a weather eye on our social, you’ll know that I’ve spent some time with TOZI in Italy to find out exactly where their ingredients come from for The Discovery Issue of House of Coco, available soon.
Located in the north west of Italy, Piemonte is where the global slow-food movement began and is known for the quality of its primary ingredients. Beef from Fassona cattle braised in local wine such as Barolo or served as a carpaccio, perfectly cooked agnolotti pasta and truffle-based dishes are among the region’s most famous delicacies.
In celebration of this cuisine, TOZI’s head chef Maurilio Molteni has created four delicious dishes showcasing the very best of Piedmont’s culinary offering. Using local Piemontese ingredients, sourced from small, artisan producers and matched with regional wines, each dish on the menu is a taste of Piemonte.
Maurilio has also matched each plate with its perfect wine pairing.
