The Italian - the gourmet club offers a variant with sweet potatoes and the special Calcagno 1946 chocolate, the historic Turin chocolate brand.

Their sharing philosophy focuses on satisfaction, participation and correct relationship between work time and life time for all the actors involved in the project. This is their daily challenge, to which is added the desire to do business ethically with local commitments.
