The editor wishes to thank the chefs and all those who have so magnificently contributed with texts and images to the realization of this special edition of the best recipes from Piemonte: without them, it would not have been possible.
Don’t look into this book for all the numerous Piemontese recipes, you will not find them: on the other hand, this was not our aim. We have tried to present the best creations, which have become true works of art, capable of satisfying not only taste, but also the other senses.
The stellar chef of ancient Rome, Marco Gavio Apicio, would certainly have been jealous of his modern heirs!
We know that we have not been exhaustive and that, perhaps in your little kitchen at home, there is an extraordinary chef who prepares exquisite dishes every day for the joy of his dear ones.
Piemonte is an extraordinarily fertile terrain also in this field.
We hope that this collection will give you moments of pleasure of the sense and the spirit and we wish you

Skin them and toast them in a frying pan.
Blend them with a little extra-virgin olive oil.
salted anchovies, garlic.
Clean 300g of salted anchovies. Clean off the salt, but do not wash them. Chop them finely with a knife.
Peel 150g of garlic, removing the sprout.
Boil the garlic, changing the water three times once it has boiled and adding 10% of milk to the last batch of water.
Sieve the garlic into a bowl of extra-virgin olive oil and add the chopped anchovies. Stir well.
Arrange the vegetables in layers in a glass so that the colours are visible and attractive. Top with a layer of bagna caôda at 50°C to maintain the flavour of the oil and the anchovies.
For the giardiniera
300g each of carrots, cauliflower, spring onions, celery, sweet pepper, skinned tomatoes, 30g sugar, 30g salt, 150g red wine vinegar, 150g extra-virgin olive oil.
In a large pan boil for 10 minutes in 1.5 litres of salted water the onions, the carrots, the bouquet garni and 10 grains of pepper. Add the rabbit and boil it on a medium flame for 50 minutes.
Leave it to cool in the broth, then drain it and remove the meat from the bones.
Tear up the meat, pacing it in layers in a glass jar with sage leaves and a couple of cloves of garlic and cover it with oil. Close the jar and leave it to rest in a cool place for at least two days.
Layer the vegetables, cleaned and cut into pieces in a large pan, putting the more solid vegetables at the bottom and finishing with the tomatoes.
Prepare an emulsion of oil, vinegar, sugar and salt and pour it over the vegetables.
Cover and cook on a low flame for thirty minutes.
Stir the vegetables gently, then cook for a further 10 minutes without a lid.
Leave the vegetables to cool, then put them into a sealed jar.
Before serving chop off the tips of the courgettes, cut them lengthways into slices about 3mm thick and blanch them in boiling salted water for 20 seconds. Cool them in iced water.
Using a pastry cutter, form a crown on each plate and fill it with the rabbit terrine, topping it with the giardiniera.
