The International Alba White Truffle Fair
The International Alba White Truffle Fair every year seeks its renewal starting from tradition: an appointment that starts from the food and wine proposal to become an experience for everyone round.
The centerpiece of the Fair is the World White Truffle Market, open every Saturday and Sunday from 5 October to 24 November (plus the extraordinary opening on 1 November). The world of food culture tells its story during the unmissable Foodies Moments, where the Alba White Truffle meets the author’s kitchen. Guided by the most famous chefs in the area and some of the most prestigious Italian restaurants, the Foodies Moments are a showcase for the creative gesture that animates the best kitchens in the country in creation of dishes in which the White Truffle of Alba is the protagonist.
For any kind of information concerning the fair, here are two links that can be very useful:
