Truffle Season in Italy

By November 13, 2014 , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Learn more about the Italian tradition of celebrating the culinary delicacy, truffles, throughout the month of November.

Autumn, particularly throughout the month of November, is a special time of year in Italy for truffles and other wild mushrooms. Around this time, many restaurants in Italy pay special tribute to this culinary delicacy by showcasing truffles in a variety of their dishes. It is also not uncommon to find entire festivals and food fairs in Italy dedicated to these tasty morsels. Particularly popular in northern and central Italy, truffle fairs are often the highlight of the November festival season.

Truffles are considered a delicacy due to their rarity, as well as their unique and strong smell and flavour. For these reasons, truffles are highly prized by chefs and culinary connoisseurs alike.

Come celebrate the arrival of November like a true Italian and join us at La Piazza Dario for a dish with wild mushrooms or touches of truffle. We highly recommend the tagliatelle delizie del bosco, a broad noodle dish served with sautéed gourmet mushrooms, herbs, and finished in truffle oil. Peruse the rest of the menu on our website.
