La Dolce Vita with the European Candy Kettle Club
Over the last few days I have had the privilege to be in Foodie Heaven, with the European Candy Kettle Club. The Club honours each year a company representative from the European confectionery industry who has excelled in the confectionery, chocolate and biscuit industry and this year it was Ferrero of Alba, Italy.
Its been a while since I was in Italy, but the allure of Piedmont, with its beautiful landscape could not be resisted. Hills covered in reposing grape vines with the last fading colours of autumn, captured my heart.
With its gastronomic delights and of course stunning wines, who wouldn’t be in foodie heaven here?
Neil is one of the newest members of The European Candy Kettle club and everyone made both Neil and I feel so welcome. There couldn’t have been a more charming group of people!
One of the highlights of the trip was The Alba truffle festival when the whole town is scented with the aroma of truffles, and local produce and food is celebrated.
So there we were, living the Dolce Vita in Italy with delightful company and sumptuous food and wine. Sorry if I didn’t manage to get your photograph this time but there is always next time……
