Family & tradition. Our cuisine has always been a family business: over 100 years and five generations of the Vicina’s family.
Quality & passion. We are strongly committed to finding high quality raw materials. In fact, our ingredient selection meets high quality criteria and excellence. We promote local producers who are remarkably valuing our environment throughout all stages of the production process. We feel like working and we are always trying our best to innovate and create.
Innovation & sperimentation. We have always promoted traditional Piedmontese cuisine. We love food experimenting and re-inventing regional dishes in order to meet today preferences. Still, our creativity does preserve our taste memory.
Uniqueness & territory stories. In 2018, we created the project “Terra Vicina: racconti di gusto con i produttori” supporting some agricultural and production businesses. They produce typical Piedmontese products and distinguish themselves amongst others thanks to their family tradition, history and working method.
Balance. In our kitchen, each ingredient is the protagonist. We emphasise its peculiarities by creating a special harmony. For this, our costumers are able to recognise all ingredients they are tasting. Casa Vicina is truly unforgettable: our flavours will find a way into your heart and memory.
Seasonality. We choose seasonal fruits and vegetables daily. This enables us to enhance the taste of the raw materials we work with together with respecting their maturation cycle.
Transparence & respect. We strongly believe in transparency and mutual respect. We do respect our clients, collaborators, partners and suppliers. Most importantly, we wisely use raw materials to substantially reduce waste. Casa Vicina is transparent since all ingredients and products used are from a controlled and certified supply chain. We are convinced that a positive lifestyle is based on both respect and transparency towards others. And by doing so, we will be able to generate sustainable awareness over time.
What we offer in Green Pea
The Michelin star restaurant Casa Vicina proposes a re-interpretation of the traditional popular Piedmontese cuisine by offering a unique experience. “Casa Vicina” serves contemporary regional dishes by revisiting traditional and familiar flavours and receipts. Since 1902, Vicina’s family has been highlighting the Piedmontese area and food with passion, creativity and meticulous research. For example, one of the traditional regional dishes, bagna cauda, has been re-interpreted as “Bagna Caudato drink”.
Cooking is a passion for the Vicina family, strictly tied to the earth and the art of cultivation. Chef Claudio Vicina has assisted his father from an early age in managing the land owned by the family in Borgofranco d’Ivrea, with its vegetable garden and over 100 olive trees. It’s a yearly tradition for the family to reunite for the olive picking season, extracting an aromatic, herbaceous extra-virgin olive oil for personal consumption.
Chef Claudio Vicina explains the Green Pea project by comparing it to Noah’s Ark: both aim to safeguard the Earth’s natural heritage by protecting it from menaces of our time such as pollution and consumerism. The project also upholds the core principles of responsibility and care for the environment. Those two elements are fundamental to understanding “green action” as something beneficial not just to individuals but also to the community as a whole. One day the Ark will come ashore, pointing to a renewed balance between Man and Nature.
For the Vicinas the concept of “green sustainability” is primarily rooted in family. From generation to generation, it’s important to pass onto sons and daughters the core values marking every family member’s personal journey. It’s a list that goes from culinary tradition to respecting nature by remaining mindful of the use of raw materials, to paying attention to the growing choice of “clean energy” over the many other possible sources.
