If you’re heard of the popular, intensely delicious white Alba truffles, get ready for their aromatic sibling. From January 6 to March 31, Spasso, DiVino Patio, and DiVino restaurants will be offering black winter truffles, introducing customers to this delightful treat.
It’s no wonder how powerful these truffles are, when it comes to elevating an ordinary meal to a five-star dining experience. These beautiful black diamonds came all the way from Norcia, Umbria, a place famous for their divine ‘tartufo nero’. Their flavours are enhanced in culinary preparation, and are perfect for all combinations.
To make this new introduction even better, the above mentioned restaurants are offering the following dishes to go with:
DiVino Truffle Creations
Seared Ahi tuna, light carrots cream, winter black truffle and roasted baby carrots
Potato gnocchi tossed with buffalo milk butter and “microplane” black truffle
