Turin, Italy's City For Chocoholics

We kicked off the week with a tasty tour of Turin, a city nestled in the Italian Alps. Turin's royal past makes it an excellent destination for foodies who will be pleasantly surprised with the many gourmet offerings in town.

The city, which is also considered Italy's industrial capital, hosts an annual chocoalte festival that attracts people from around the world. Aside from devouring every morsel of chocolate we came across, we took some time to sample gelato shops and local markets.

For the full scoop, read about our discoveries of the beautiful city of Turin.

Acqua Panna's Tribute to Renaissance

From Turin we headed down to Tuscany to experience a sumptuous tribute to the Renaissance hosted at Villa Panna, once the stomping grounds of the Medici family.

The event was hosted by Acqua Panna and featured the cuisine of the very talented Davide Scabin, a two Michelin-star chef from Turin, who prepared exquisite dishes for 90 international guests. It was an evening to be remembered.

Check out our exclusive interview with Chef Scabin and pictures from the grand event.

Discovering Vegetable Milk

We rounded off the week with a look at the different type of vegetable milks available in the markets around the world. Whether you are dairy intolerant or just curious, check out what we discovered about milk made from almonds, coconut, soy and rice.
