Mark your calendar: Eataly Toronto is celebrating its annual Truffle Day on Sunday, December 22. In time for the holidays, bring home fresh white truffles from Italy at up to 50% off!
In Italy and across the world, white truffles are considered culinary gold. The small, aromatic, and bumpy tubers are incredibly rare, only in season for a few months in Alba in northern Piemonte, where they typically grow among oak, hazel, poplar, and beech trees. And the taste? The prized ingredient boasts earthy aromas and notes of shallot, leaving a truly unforgettable flavour to savour. Read on to discover all the ways you can celebrate with us this Truffle Day on Sunday, December 22!
1. SHOP FRESH TRUFFLES AT OUR LOWEST PRICE IN YEARS
Looking for the best place to buy truffles in Toronto? Only on Sunday, December 22, stop by our La Pasta Fresca (our fresh pasta counter) to shop fresh white truffles from Urbani before the season ends!* Truffle prices are determined by the bounty of the season. After a long and hot summer followed by a foggy, damp November, this year’s white truffle yield in Piemonte is exceptionally flavorful and abundant. This means that we’re able to offer you great prices – just in time for the holidays!
Small Truffles (up to 15 grams) regular price
$9.90/gram – $5.90/gram

Once you get your truffle to take home, browse our marketplace for truffle oils, sauces, and more. Then, plot your next holiday feast. Fresh truffles are best shaved over simple but quality dishes, such as bruschetta, risotto, and pasta, while you can use authentic truffle oil as a decadent finishing touch over meat dishes and more. In other words: move over, pork roast. The new maestro of the meal is here!
