Gastronomy and culture, this is the nexus that characterizes Alba’s Fair every year: concerts, exhibitions, design projects, literary events, and then, of course, him, the Tuber Magnum Pico, the precious white truffle.
Besides being a territory’s symbol, white truffle is also the emblem of a long tradition of hunting. Truffle hunting is a real ritual, usually conducted at night, with the sole company of one’s own dog, with forest and soil aromas, coupled with the memory of sites, secretly passed on from generation to generation.
So precious to aim at UNESCO’s World heritage status!
The territory that has instead already obtained the nomination from UNESCO in 2014, as a land able to keep a perfect balance between man and nature, is the surrounding area of Alba, that is the wine-growing landscape of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato. Here you can find the vines of Nebbiolo, Moscato Bianco and Barbera. A real feast for eyes and palate.
Piedmont is a land with a strong food and wine identity. To highlight this sense of belonging, during the event, guests can take part in “Foodies Moments” with the most important local chefs, with the area having 23 Michelin-starred restaurants. Show cooking events will present white truffle in original and unique combinations and wine tasting experiences will mix the flavour of truffle with local wines of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato.
Participate to the historic Alba’s White Truffle International Fair from October 6th to November 25th and don’t miss one of the main event of fine cuisine and Italian excellence.
