Torino-born chef Roberto Donna owns Galileo, an upscale Italian restaurant based in Washington, D.C., that specializes in Piedmont regional dishes. At his restaurant, chef Donna adheres to a philosophy of food that started in the region — the slow food movement. It snubs its nose at fast dining and is dedicated to the use of authentic ingredients. The daily dishes are made with natural and homemade ingredients, which are often made from scratch. And the restaurant's menu continuously changes with the flavors and seasons of Piedmont. Chef Donna visited “Today” in Torino to share some special foods from this area of Italy.
