After leaving catering college, Rudy Marangon learned the ropes working with top chefs. Then, in a small workshop of 20 square metres, rented on a farm near Pianezza, he fell in love with cakes and confectionery and began turning out his first biscuits under the Agribiscotto brand. In August 2012, finally, Rudy, with a few relatives and collaborators, decided to open a shop of his own in the old centre of Pianezza. After attending a course on baking yeast-leavened cakes, he began turning out the specialities for which he is now famous, using fine flours and select ingredients. His range features special breads, a selection of pastries and biscuits, among which Melicotti, a biscuit historically linked with Pianezza for which he has an exclusive licence. The shop doubles up as a café and natural ice cream parlour, and also sells fresh pasta, charcuterie and cheese, and a number of Slow Food Presidium products which customers can enjoy sitting down at the tables. The shop collaborates with a number of restaurants and companies in Turin and its province, and also lays on catering services. Open from 7.30am to 1pm and from 4pm to 8pm, on Sunday from 1pm to 12.30pm. It closes on Mondays.
