truffle price

 

Autumn in Monferrato is the time for enogastronomic treasure hunting.
It is the season of the famous white truffle; unearthed in designated woodlands by local truffle hunters (trifolai) and their well trained dogs.
The aromatic tuber shows up this time of year in restaurants and home kitchens, lightly shaved over fresh pasta, carne crudo, or risotto.
The commerce of truffles has a long history in Monferrato and the seasonal meetings of trifolai, to sell (and boast about) their bounty have become regular events on the fall calendar.

Here are the Truffle Fairs of Monferrato:
