Piemontese food, the birthplace of Italy’s slow food, is delicious!
Most meals we will savour it at local restaurants in the village to support the local economy. Find out more about the restaurants to enjoy in Ostana.
We will also enjoy meals at the MVI Campus, making use of the pizza oven and bbq at the fireplace. Food will be locally produced and healthy. We will offer vegetarian food as the default but some responsible meat options are available, same with vegan. We will try our best to tend to special needs. Good, though, to be aware of the traditions in mountain food, for example, that cheese is a common ingredient.
