One of the things that I was looking forward to in Italy, was the delicious food. Not that I lack of delicious food here at home: we have so many beautiful French products and of course I have my own private chef. But still: Italian food also has a reputation 😉 Of course our lovely guide knew exactly where to take us for the perfect lunch. Nothing ultra gourmet or fine cuisine, but beautiful local products, wine from the next village and a friendly owner.
Welcome to Al Boeuc, a wine bar where they serve typical Piemontese food. We ordered a cheese & meat platter, bruschetta (toasted bread with different toppings like truffle & mushroom, radicchio cream and tomato & basil). And of course the famous Bagna Caöda: a hot dip made of garlic, anchovies, olive oil, butter and cream. You eat it by dipping raw veggies. Accompagnied by a fruity wine and nice conversations, this lunch was so so good!
Al Boeuc serves simple and honest dishes and it's all very tasty. If you're ever in the Lake area, this place deserves your visit! Buon appetito!

This looks like a place I would choose for myself too! It is pretty cruel of you to post this today as I'm keeping to the lent today ;-)) Joyeuses Paques my friend!

Good times, great meal!
Hahaha technically it is indeed ;) We definitely have to go back to Al Boeuc on our next trip! Can't wait!

It's really bad to read this after a work out. It looks so delicious. Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Yesterday my husband and I also enjoyed just some bread, cheese and meat for dinner. Delicious!
So true right, simple meals are the best… and with beautiful products like these, it's so so delicious! And then we just add an extra km to our runs right? :p
