Producer: Primo Pan
In the early 1900s, Giacomo Biga was a peasant farmer in the Ligurian Alps. Fearing for a poor harvest, he committed himself to an appretinceship in baking. Soon Giacomo found himself consumed by a passion for bread making. Winning the plaudits of his mentor in the bakery, he struck out to begin his own pastry shop. Today, Giacomo's passion has become Primo Pan — a family run business for over eight years.
The Piedmont region sits at the foot of the alps, bordering France and Switzerland. Its soaring mountains and rolling plains are home to some of Italy's most beloved cuisine, from egg-rich pastas to rich, salty cured meats. While food culture here is rooted in tradition, new and exciting variations are always just around the corner.
