Giuseppe Castino, one of the great confectioners of the last century, was the inventor of the Torta Zurigo, still the pride and joy of the patisserie that bears his name, under the arcades opposite Pinerolo Cathedral. The establishment’s more recent history is linked to the Cosso-Eynard family to whom credit is due for reopening it in 2014. The Cosso Foundation also promotes initiatives at the Castle of Miradolo, just out of town, where it has opened a cafeteria. The workshop is run by Davide Muro and his team, who turn out goodies for every hour of the day: hence 20 or so different types of croissants and brioches at breakfast time, tramezzini and panini during the lunch break, and a dozen different savory canapés (tomato chantilly, langarola, frangipane …) to serve with aperitifs. Savory panettoni are available all the year round, and a new onion and Gorgonzola version has now been added to the range. The line of biscuits and petite patisserie is vast and the team also produce frutta martorana, marzipan sweets reproducing fruit and vegetables, rum baba and jar-cooked plumcake, or pound cake.
