The starred chef Francesco Oberto brings the Langhe and Roero cuisine in his restaurant “Da Francesco”, which is located in a beautiful historical palace, with frescoes realised by Operti, which date back to 1772.
The change from tavern to starred restaurant is not a discounted goal. “Da Francesco”, in Cherasco, does not betray the Piedmont tradition and it proposes a series of dishes which show a fresh and communicative style.
Cherasco, famous for heliciculture and for the chocolate pralines called “baci”, has conquered over time the fame of a place famous for peace, due to the high number of non-belligerent treaties signed between the XVII and XIX centuries.
This vocation remains in the historical and artistic richness of the city as a testament of its welcoming spirit. This sense of closeness leaves traces even in the hospitality, that distinguishes the new local restaurateurs, including Francesco Oberto himself, awarded with a Michelin star in 2016.
The desire to surprise … with wines
In September 2016 the restaurant “Da Francesco” has been selected among the Maisons recommandées” by “Perriet Jouer”, a prestigious Champagne brand, distributed in Italy by “Antinori”. This club includes a selected list of wine bars, wineries and restaurant, whose love for sparkling wines is expressed in the same way in which the Champagne is produced. From important vineyards, “Pierre Jouer” is synonym of elegance since 1811. This Champagne, have been compared to a ” thousand faces diamond “, in fact it is rich in floral nuances, the result of research to the limit of perfection. Just think that in its 200 years of life only seven people have been “chef de cave”. Among those, since 1993, there is also Hervé Deschamps, who spent 10 years under the lead of the mentor André Baveretto to discover every kind of techniques and hand down the original vision of Nicolas Perrier. Each “cuvée” is something unique in its kind, both in the assembly technique and in the packaging, and it conveys the creative charm of wine in a piece of art: the bottle designed by Emile Gallé in 1902.
