We'll then welcome you on our delicious tour, tasting mixed appetizers (the typical cold cuts and varieties of cheese or alternatively, a ‘Merenda Sinoira’, or regional mixed appetizers, such as ‘vitello tonnato’ - veal with tuna sauce - and ‘tomini’ - typical fresh cheese in green sauce), accompanied by a glass of the best Italian wine (which is of course of the region), a good Vermouth (Carpano and other worldwide estimated local brands), and the noble Bicerin (hot chocolate with coffee and warm cream), followed by a visit to the fantastic Slow Food shop of Biraghi*, where we'll taste maize pastries (Paste di meliga), gianduiotti and the popular Biraghi cheese, accompanied by our local award-winning coke: the Mole Cola.
