Castello Castellamonte Welcome to the Castle

Mise en place for the King’s or Pope’s table

There is nothing more delightful than enjoying lunch prepared by a chef, or dinner delivered to your door, with an excellent wine on the side and a well-set table! Even if we don’t own Vinovo porcelain dinnerware, Baccarat crystal glasses or silver cutlery, we can still have fun learning how to set the table! In his family Castle, Castellamonte Castle, which is located on a hill near Ivrea between Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta, Tomaso Ricardi di Netro uses valuable porcelain, plates, glasses and silverware which have belonged to his family for centuries to set his table piece by piece, from the bare table to a complete mise-en-place. Tomaso explains the history of the individual pieces, their origin, their manufacture, and their current destination, and finally describes the menu and recipes served at the Dukes of Savoy’s table between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries … a truly special experience which is not to be missed!
