Cuiette Day 2020

There is no peasant and valley family in the Cuneo foothills that does not know the gastronomic tradition known as Madonna delle Cuiette or Madonna degli Gnocchi. Day of joyful feast where housewives, mothers and grandmothers did their best to prepare the first gnocchi with potatoes of the season. And it is not yet clear the origin of this historical event that has been celebrated for a long time every year on December 8th – feast of the Immaculate Conception. Hence the name of the recurrence. It seems that this date was intended as “a brand day”. From that moment on, the potatoes are refined and right for the preparation of the well known dish. But it could also be a moment of thanksgiving and a good omen for the next harvest.  The Bodi Consortium, in collaboration with the Associazione Albergatori e Ristoratori della Valle Grana, with the patronage of the Unione Montana Valle Grana and the Municipality of Monterosso Grana, in harmony with its territory, renews the historic appointment with the Cuiete day, the day of gnocchi. The gastronomic event, which this year celebrates its 5th edition, involves the restaurateurs of the Grana Valley in an alliance for the territory in the sign of the local historical tradition.
During the day, in some places in the valley will be served a menu where it will be possible to taste the gnocchi. Here is the list of restaurants:

  • Agriturismo La Braida – Monterosso Grana
  • Trattoria Aquila Nera – Monterosso Grana
  • Agripiola Lou Porti – Monterosso Grana
