On Chasing Truffles
Where to go or how to cook those stinky little gems
While all restaurants in Piedmont will be making simple pasta dishes during truffle season, it sort of seems a shame to go to a palace of culinary adventure simply to order expensive truffles over perfectly prepared pasta. Instead I would suggest visiting some of the top Trattorie of the region.
My go tos remain the Trattoria Antica Torre in Barbaresco and Trattoria da Bercau, pictured and who have recently upgraded to one very fancy website these are place I love to go to regularly for well priced simple yet soulfully authentic food when I am in the region.
In Barbaresco don’t miss a visit to the Produttori del Barbaresco, one of the finest producers not only in Barbaresco, but in all of Piedmont. Ditto for Burlotto in Verduno, which is why you’ll be in Verduno, the visit to Bercau simply icing on the cake, and frankly a good reason to stay in Verduno for a few days while you’re in Piedmont.
