“We keep beating the French, what can I say”

So said Fabrizio Garbarino during our interview this morning. Sig. Garbarino is President of the Roccaverano DOP Coop.; one of 12 interviews for my next book called, “Piemonte; the stories that need to be told”.

I mean, it’s one thing to overtake the French in both quality and quantity of wine, which Italy did a few years ago, but to beat them at cheese! Perhaps this comes as no surprise to the locals but the quality that goes into these products is insane. As with Robiola di Roccaverano – a world award winning cheese.

Piemonte has 1,000’s of little town, perhaps more than any other region in Italy; many of them terrifically busy creating these superior sorts of products.

So many stories! They truly need to be told, the quality and care will restore the faith in the reader. I just know it. And I cannot wait until the world opens up and everyone can come visit Italy once again.

Until then, buon appetito!
