If the sweet memory of a weekend in Piedmont between autumn mist, hills as far as the eye can see, coppery foliage and a visit to Alba on the occasion of the 89th International White Truffle Fair made your mouth water, know that Milan also offers special locations where you can eat the highly prized white truffle. Cozy rooms that taste of tradition, crackling fireplaces and palettes praising natural shades will be the perfect location for a tasty autumn dish.
A centuries-old history, that of the famous Alba White Truffle: poor quality food in the Middle Ages, in the 18th century it recalled its nobility in the courts of Europe and became fascinating entertainment for the illustrious guests who went to Turin during the harvest period. Called “Mozart dei Funghi” by the composer Rossini and “Sancta Santorum” of the kitchen by the literate Dumas, in 1831 a science was devoted to studying and analyzing the truffle.
It’s a mushroom meant to be tasted raw, embracing soft butter tajarin and steaming risotto, more or less seasoned cheeses, fresh meats from the best farms or delicate salads. Be captivated by the seasonal menus, in multifaceted locations: between starred preparations and restaurants “as in the past,” truffle in Milan will satisfy even the most demanding palates. You just have to sit at the table and close your eyes. From the Milanese streets to the Piedmont hills, Alba has never been so close.
