The Tuber Magnatum white truffle festival is located high in the Gran Sasso Mountains in the small medieval town of Poggio Umbricchio. It was once part of the world’s smallest republic Senarica and was aligned to Venice.
Expect lots of yummy truffle stalls with a diverse range of white and black truffle with plenty of tasting! A varied truffle menu, chestnuts, mulled wine and music. The mayor is a truffle hunter who took me truffle hunting and cooked with what we found, an amazing experience and so glad to see everyone can go truffle hunting over the weekend.
Some sagra make out-of-reach ingredients possible to taste, especially when it is a white truffle that currently costs €600 per 100g! White truffle in a risotto in a restaurant could see you looking at €50!
It’s organised by local truffle hunter Enzo who I spent a wonderful day truffle hunting and eating some incredible dishes using his truffles! Do go and see a truffle community coming together in this little village with incredible views of the Gran Sasso!
Did you know it’s not just boars but porcupines too that are partial to a truffle or two!
