Alba White Truffle
October - December Piemonte -Piedmont  Fairs/Food and Flea markets | Food/Wine

The truffle grows spontaneously in all Italian regions and is celebrated in several gastronomic traditions, but only some regions have developed a system of fairs and festivals to celebrate it.
Piedmont is the Italian region where the truffle culture is traditionally more developed. There are many different events such as festivals, fairs and feasts in which truffles are sold, tasted and discussed in workshops.

The truffle varieties in Piedmont
Among the 9 truffle species considered to be more interesting as food, the white one is the most refined and it is considered everywhere the king of the table. In Piedmont all the other 8 species are also diffused.

If someone wants to try the experience (and the emotion) of the wild truffle hunt, see where you can find them >>>

Piedmont is the only region where truffle hunting at night is allowed, because the dog is less disturbed and, by ancient tradition, because the darkness protects the “trifolau” from curious eyes.
Alba (in the province of Cuneo) is home to the oldest and most important truffle fair in Italy and one of the first in the world: the International Alba White Truffle Fair which is held from October to December and represents a very important event for the city with a huge turnover.
It also combines high-level food and wine with important cultural and musical events. During all the weekends of the Fair, national and international chefs and local chefs alternate with presentations of recipes and cooking shows.
