Truffle Dinner + November Wine Week
White Truffle & Piedmontese Wine Dinner
Thursday, November 17th 2022
Five courses & Five pours
One of the most luxurious ingredients adored by chefs the world over: truffles.
Called the “diamond of the kitchen” by 18th-century epicurean Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, the truffle is prized among discerning food lovers. These fungi come in many varieties, the most prized of which is the white truffle. White truffles grow in many parts of Italy, but those from the Alba region of Piedmont are the most sought after. They are only found in the wild, with the aid of specially trained dogs.
While we are still finalizing the menu, the distinct aroma and intense earthy flavor will transform our luxury ingredients like Foie Gras, Wagyu Short Ribsand possibly Caviar into exquisite experiences. Featured during this dinner will be wine from all over the Piedmont region, including Barbaresco and Barolo, from some of the most renowned producers of the Piedmont region. Piedmontese wines are the perfect compliment for this experience. Join us as we highlight one of the MOST prized ingredients in the world as this will be an INCREDIBLE night of food & wine!
