The essence of the Fair, on every Saturday and Sunday in October and November, is the Alba White Truffle World Market.
During all the weekends of the Fair there will be national and international chefs, local chefs, designers, writers and artists sharing the same passion for truffles and the culture of good food and good taste.
Dedicated to real gourmets, and now known as Foodies Moments, they celebrate the marriage between the great cuisine and the Alba White Truffle; among taste, luxury and beauty, guiding the public in starred kitchens to discover the secrets of the most important chefs at national and international level who, for the occasion, consecrate their inspiration for dishes specifically made for the Alba White Truffle.
During this event, the Alba Truffle Show takes place: a Show Cooking with the great chefs, the Truffle Sensory Analysis, the Wine Tasting Experience, twinnings with territories of food and wine excellence and “marriages of taste” in the hills of Langhe, Roero and Monferrato together with guests, meetings and debates.
But the Fair is also made of folklore and great historical re-enactments, confirming and increasing its educational purposes with the Alba Truffle Kids; with a pavilion dedicated to children and their families.
An exhibition area located in the historic center, the perfect place to appreciate and buy the best truffles from the Langhe, Roero and Monferrato woods. ■
