10 best places to eat in the Langhe, including restaurants bistros and osterias
The Langhe is the undisputed realm of food and wine, where the cuisine and wine are the result of a mosaic of products of excellence: the white truffle of Alba, the great cheeses, prized Piedmontese meat, the Nocciola Tonda Gentile hazelnut, and Nebbiolo.
What are the great traditional dishes of the Langhe?
From this happy encounter, many celebrated traditional dishes were created: veal in tuna sauce, salted tongue, braised meats, boiled meats with their sauces, tajarin (tagliolini) with Castelmagno fondue, agnolotti del plin (rectangular agnolotti) stuffed with meat sautéed in butter... All this and much more, accompanied by the majestic Nebbiolo, in its excellent 'simple' version, as well as that of Barolo or Barbaresco.
