A vegetarian in Piemonte?

summerUWS2008 | Oct 9, 2009 02:27 AM

Can anybody provide tips about finding food in Piemonte other than meat that pairs with Piemonte's legendary wines? Ideal is a place to eat with rooms (or within walking distance of rooms). I'm cool with some fish (bagna cauda) but would like to hear about vegetarian menus that are not utterly reliant on cheese (or non-stop truffles plus eggs or pasta -- unaffordable!)

Are some areas and cuisines of Piemonte more vegetarian-oriented than others? How do vegetarians get by? What do they drink? The picture of Piemonte so often painted is red wine and braised meat. Is there a vegetarian tradition we don't hear about?
