La Morra (Piedmont)

La Morra is a town in the Province of Cuneo, in the Italian region Piedmont. La Morra originated as Murra, a village built in the Roman era by the neaby town of Alba Pompeia. In 1631 it became a possession of the House of Savoy. Long a major wine growing region, it was illegal in La Morra to cut down a Nebbiolo vine. The penalties for this offense ranged from a fine, to having a hand amputated to hanging.

Recipes From Piedmont


Agnolotti, little bundles of fresh pasta that are filled with anything from a mix of meats to vegetables, are an iconic dish of the Piedmont region of northern Italy.


This baked cake has a surprisingly delicate almond flavor. Enjoy a slice with coffee or tea, or a glass of amaretto liqueur.


Corzetti (also called curzetti and croxetti), an especially uniquely shaped pasta, has been popular since the middle ages and get its name from corzetto, a 14th century Genoa coin.


Pesche ripiene piemontesi is a typical Piedmontese dessert made with peaches and crushed amaretti that you often find on the menus during the summer season.
