The name ‘Bonèt” has more than a meaning in the Piedmontese dialect, generally it means ‘hat, cap’. The Piedmontese/Italian dictionary written by Vittorio Sant’Albino in 1859 suggests the name comes from the copper mold in which it was poured into, in fact it was hat-like. In the Langhe people say it has been called Bonèt because it was served at the end of the meal.
