Tapas & Tastings


Thursday October 19th, 2017

Well, it's that time of year and my truffle guy Ramelli is meeting me at an airport hotel lobby next Wednesday morning with fresh truffles from Italy. The heady aroma of Alba truffle, warm melty Fontina cheese, toasted hazelnuts, and creamy risotto paired with Barolo and Barbaresco are the magical evocations of Northern Italy's crown jewel – Piemonte.
