You are in for an extraordinary experience in November when we will host a memorable dinner to celebrate white truffle season. White truffle season comes to Ferraro’s on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., when guests will savor one of the season’s most indulgent ingredients – Italian white truffles – at this special-occasion dinner.
Italian white truffles are widely regarded as the most exquisite of all truffles. Their season runs typically from late October to late December. Truffles grow in the wild, where they enjoy a symbiotic relationship with mature oak, beech and hazelnut trees, from which they draw carbohydrates while growing underground. For this reason, truffles cannot be cultivated. That fact, together with their unmistakably rich and umami-filled flavor, makes truffles a universally rare and sought-after ingredient.
This extraordinary dinner stars the three revered Nebbiolo wines: Barbera, Barbaresco, and Barolo—each one paired with dishes incorporating shaved white truffle:
- Braida, Barbera Montebruna, 2016, paired with Uovo (Slow poached egg, potato mousseline, raschera cheese)
- Braida, Barbera “Ai Suma”, 2016, paired with Battuta al Coltello (Piedmont style beef tartare, hazelnut, porcini mushrooms)
- Pio Cesare Barbaresco, 2013, paired with Tajarin e Quaglia (32 yolk Taglierini, quail consommé reduction)
- Pio Cesare Barolo, 2015, paired with Vitellina (Veal sirloin, chestnut, pumpkin, fontina cheese)
Note this event replaces Ferraro’s monthly Taste & Learn evening, although dishes served will be full portions, not tapas-style small plates. The cost for this one-night-only dinner is $250 per person and is inclusive of tax & gratuity.
