Alba White Truffle Fair – Diamond of the Kitchen/h6>

Eighteenth century French gastronome Brillat-Savarin called the truffle “the diamond of the kitchen”. Elusive and rare, the best truffles are the wild white Piedmontese variety, Tuber Magnatum Pico from the Alba in Cuneo, Northern Italy. The best harvesting ground is around the damp Langhe forests, where truffles thrive symbiotically with tree roots.

The flesh (or gleba) of this lumpy, woody-looking fungus varies from white to yellowish-grey colour etched between by thin white veins. Tuber Magnatum Pico releases a pungent and powerful fragrant, best described as earthy, woody and aged cheese aroma.

Join famed Italian Chef Carlo Zarri as speaks to vendors and attendees at the Alba White Truffle Fair.

Italian white truffles, depending on the size and quality can fetch as high as USD5,000 a kilogram, and are available between September to December.

Every October, culinary professionals and connoisseurs, tycoons and celebrities from around the world converge at the annual Alba White Truffle Fair to bid and purchase the world’s best white truffles (tartufo bianco).
