There are many different local products and gastronomic specialties.
Viso Valleys are well-known for their cheese: the most famous one is Nostrale. Other kinds of cheese are the so-called Rifreddo, made of small "tome" which were sold on straw trellies, while Barge was famous for its production of pecorino cheese.
The valley houses an important craftsmanship of preserved meat, above all in Cavour; there are two kinds of cold cuts which are worth tasting, the so-called Batiùr or Mariùr and the beef salami, one of the few salami in Italy made with beef.
Saluzzo, "the Siena of Piedmont", gives the name to a white hen which is more difficult to find than Bionda breed, but also to the DOC wine of Colline Saluzzesi, dedicated to the grapes Pelaverga, Quagliano, Nebbiolo, and Barbera.
Ancient apple varieties have survived in the areas which are not exploited by fruit growing, while chestnuts are commercialized on the market of Paesana.
