La piattella canavesana di Cortereggio: We are talking about a kind of white bean that has been handed down from generation to generation all the way to us today, due to the knowledge of the ancient farmers from Cortereggio village. During the 2010 Salone del Gusto event a group of companies was constituted that were committed to protecting this ancient legume within the boundaries of respect of rules and traditions, and with the intention to increase the production and distribution. The commitment and profusion of the Association that these companies formed allowed them to participate at the Salone as a new and first Presidio Slow food of Canavese.

Editor’s note: we have published articles about the Salone del Gusto based on information provided by Slow Food International such as this: http://www.madeinitalymall.com/blog/salone-del-gusto-and-terra-madre-inaugurated-in-turin/
