Take Me to the Capital of Chocolate!

Did you know?

Italians tend to eat chocolate only in cold seasons and after Easter they seem to switch to chocolate ice cream. Who would want luscious rich melt-in-your-mouth addictive cocoa goodness all year around? Not Italians as it turns out.

But in Turin, this is not the case. According to Anna Lebedeva, Turin is the capital of chocolate — all year round.

So where to go? She has you covered!  Of the five that she recommends, I would first make a beeline for Peyrano.  It is that hazelnut cream and grappa filling that gets me. The Torta Peyano sounds pretty good too!
