Sagra di Tortello : Truffles
Come join us for our 3rd Sagra di Tortello, this time celebrating TRUFFLES, Near Alba, it isn’t uncommon for folks to have their very own white truffle hunter on speed dial to place personal truffle orders, and we’ll be speed dialing ours straight from the source.
Chef Sieger has created a fantastic 4-course menu centered around these rich, earthy black and white delicacies, and Dario will be doing the honor of truffle shaving. Tickets come with a truffle-rich menu, a glass of wine & options to add on wine pairings & a white truffle boost throughout your meal.

Following the hands-on portion of the evening, class members will enjoy a 3 course family-style meal presented by our Chef, giving participants the opportunity to experience the spirit of true Italian hospitality. This event is ages 21+.
