Traditional Piedmontese Beverage | Bicerin


We are fortunate to work in both The Netherlands and Italy. Today my husband and I were in Turin for a business meeting. It was the first time for me to visit this impressive city. Unfortunately there wasn’t time to see a lot of it but I did try the famous ‘Bicerin’ 😀

Bicerin is a hot chocolate in Turin style. It dates way back to the 18th century when the ‘torinesi’ took this drink for breakfast. The ingredients used:

  • espresso
  • chocolate
  • milk

Here’s a link to the interesting story of this tasty chocolate drink (they even share chocolate recipes):
