A Rare Gastronomic Journey: 4th Annual White Truffle Dinner

By: Rachelle Lucas


For the foodie looking for a rare and luxurious culinary experience, this is it.

Cioppino at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne will be hosting its 4th Annual White Truffle Dinner on Nov. 13.  There are only 60 seats available to this delicious event, which is why we're letting you know a bit early so you can get your reservation in time.  

Known as the "Diamonds of the Kitchen," the rare and highly coveted white truffle mushrooms reach their peak of harvest during the month of October. Chef de Cuisine Ezio Gamba of Cioppino, Sommelier Jorge Mendoza and special guest Fiorenzo Dogliani of Batasiolo SpA winery will present a six-course pairing menu of fine delicacies. Dogliani brings with him vertical vintage wines from past decades of the Crus of Barolo, sourced directly from the private library at Batasolio SpA, as well as a selection of white truffles freshly gathered from his homeland. Guests will be guided through these rare wines, each expertly matched with the earthy, woody flavors of white truffles, shaved a la minute on the restaurant’s open kitchen marble display.

Take a peek at the menu below.
