White truffle season comes to Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar with a special four-course dinner and wine pairing on Tuesday, Dec. 7, from 6:30 – 10 p.m. With each course, guests will savor the incomparable taste of authentic Italian white truffles, which are considered among the most indulgent ingredients in the world.
The growing season for Italian white truffles typically runs from late October to late December. This year, white truffles are unusually scarce due to Italy’s weather conditions. 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 exquisite truffle dinner will include wines from the Lodali Winery in the heart of the Langhe, a land of culture and tradition of wine.
The full menu follows:
Seared scallops, chardonnay citrus cream, truffle caviar, sea beans, fresh white truffles
Carpaccio di Vitello
Veal carpaccio, Parmigiano truffle cream crispy Shimeji mushrooms, microgreens, Parmigiano-Reggiano, hazelnuts, fresh white truffles
Agnolotti di Zucca
