Home to the Hercules’ Temple, Lazio is also famous for the four pasta sauces of Rome: Carbonara, Cacio E Pepe, Amatriciana and Gricia."

 

October- Trip To Umbria

Simplistic charm and humble history create flavorful dishes without being fussy including delicious grilled meats, salami, honey and lentils."

 

November- Trip To Piedmont

Warm up with the most flavorful and classic tradition-bound cooking from Piedmont. From pastas, boiled meat and red wines, you can’t go wrong."

 

December- Trip To Lombardy

The true tastes of Lombardy are risotto, extra virgin olive oil and panettone all thanks to the crystal clear lakes of Iseo and Como."

Meet Chef Richard Skoyex

Chef Richard’s passion for Italian cuisine began at the age of 14 when we was working at a family-owned Italian restaurant in Bradenton, FL. Chef Richard moved to Upstate New York for his culinary internship and learned about Turning Stone. He has been with Turning Stone since 2012.

“Most people don't realize how large of a country Italy is and how completely different each region is from the next. From Piedmont in North Italy, offering hearty dishes influenced by French Cuisine, to Calabria on the southern tip with some of the world’s best seafood, each region has its own style.”
