Fra Fiusch – Reinventing tradition

Here It is: My first “out of town” spot. City people do not like going too far… but the place is really worth the road. Believe me.

You can choose between a 3-course-and-dessert menu with different choices for the first and main course, and the “à la carte” menu. I chose basil flan, burrata and tomato sherbet as entrée: the contrast of flavours and temperatures was perfect.

I also had a bite of fried porcini (seasonal dish) and I also tasted porcini tajarin. These are very slim tagliatelle. They’re a typical Piedmontese pasta kind, made with a large amount of eggs so they appear really yellow.

I was stunned by the desserts. I chose “Piemonte in bocca” (Piedmont in the mouth). It is 5 typical desserts in one dish: zabajone cream (alcoholic custard), bacio di dama sand (hazelnut biscuits), Bonet (chocolate and amaretto pudding), heart of panna cotta (cream and vanilla seeds pudding) and Bicerin mousse on top (a typical Turinese beverage made with coffee, chocolate and liquid cream).

There was also an “Irish coffee”-inspired dessert and a violet and lime ice cream dessert that were special.

I recommend “Fra Fiusch” for special occasions (anniversaries, birthdays or celebrations in general), although there were at least two tables of coworkers. The view is stunning (more so during summer) and the staff is exquisite.

The menu is full of plenty of other traditional dishes to try.
I’m looking forward to try them. And have another “Piemonte in Bocca”.
