Piazza della Consolata, 5, 10122 Torino TO, Italy
The Bicerin is a gastronomic speciality of Turin. I love both chocolate and espresso, and was delighted to discover this warming confection in a glass, also called a Bicerin. The drink is layered into the glass oh so carefully: espresso first,...

Via Roma, 18, 28010 Soriso NO, Italy
Located in the tiny village of Soriso near Lake Orta in Italy, Al Sorisso isn't the sort of restaurant that travellers would stumble across accidentally. Yet it has fed and watered plenty of famous names. Its fame is mainly thanks to the talents...
