Mark your calendar: Eataly Boston is celebrating Truffle Day on Friday, December 22. In time for the holidays, you can bring home a fresh white truffle from Italy at the lowest price of the season: $7.80 per gram.
Why is this exciting? In Italy and across the world, white truffles are considered culinary gold (yes, we're talking about those small, funky smelling, bumpy tubers). First, they're 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? Please. The prized ingredient boasts earthy aromas and notes of shallot that are unforgettable.
Are you already plotting your holiday feast? Fresh truffles are best shaved over a simple but quality dish, such as bruschetta, risotto, pasta, and much more. In other words: move over, pork roast. We have a new maestro of the meal.
