Get ready to unearth one of Italy’s most prized ingredients – fresh white truffles are back in season! From November 13 to 22, 2020, treat yourself to this prized tuber at Eataly Toronto with truffle-forward dishes to-go, market offers, and more. It’s 2020, and you deserve it.
Native to Italy, the tuber magnatum is a white truffle that grows from September to December in the forests of Piemonte, particularly in the region of Alba. The tartufo bianco is a particularly treasured variety thanks to its golden colour, pungent aroma and delicate, earthy flavour. It’s no wonder that Italians call this ingredient the “diamond of the kitchen.”
This season, we’re celebrating this unique variety of truffles in our market and restaurants with seasonal offers in our marketplace and truffle specials to go.
