Italy gluten free food tour: Turin.
If you are looking for some great gluten free pizza in Turin, then Il Padellino restaurant is the place to go.
Today I am in town again on the occasion of the first Italy gluten free food tour that I have organised for the French magazine Niepi. I am so happy to show Frédérique and Fabien, co-founders and directors of the magazine, the places that I love and where you can eat great gluten free food.
So welcome to Il Padellino!
For those of you who have been following me lately, the name Elisa might sound familiar. Elisa is Baci di Dama lovely nutrionist from Turin. She also works for the Italian Celiac Association of the Piemonte region (AIC Piemonte) and she is the one who trained Il Padellino restaurant, chef Tamer and his team to the art of cooking gluten free. What I find really great about it, it’s that the training courses by AIC Piemonte are completely free of charges – the region pays for them – and this allows more and more restaurants and cafés which handle also gluten in their kitchen to learn how to cook gluten free safe from any possible cross contamination with gluten. Elisa comes back there every six months for a regular check-up of the kitchen, get the feedbacks from the team and see that everything is properly working.
During lunch we’got the chance to catch up with her, Federica who works for the AIC Piemonte as well and Marco, owner and founder of Il Padellino in Turin.
