Gofreria Piemonteisa is in the centre of Turin but when you walk in it’s like being in one of the Alpine valleys, where gofri are a tradition. Since 2015 the recipe has been popular as a sort of simple but refined street food in fairs and festivals all over Piedmont. Made only of flour and water, without eggs and milk (often impossible to come across in the valleys), they are a poor man’s version of the French crepe. At the new shop in Via Barbaroux, it’s also possible to enjoy miassa, a crisp wafer made solely of flour and water, and miaccia, a recipe from the Valsesia made with buckwheat flour. There are gofri and miaccia fillings for everyone: from boiled ham and prosciutto to olives, cheese (Raschera is de rigeur) and lardo. A great place for a pleasant lunchtime snack, maybe accompanied by a glass of Aleghe beer or the specially bottled red wine.
