Make an autumn city trip to Turin even more memorable with a visit to the hilly region of Piemonte, Italy’s truffle region. Black truffles can be found almost year round, but from September through November this beautiful region is famous for its aromatic white truffles. Piemonte marks this time of year with truffle markets, truffle hunts, and of course truffle dishes.
3 centuries ago, the chefs of French king Louis XIV introduced the truffle as a delicacy. A fungus that grows underground, the truffle is mainly found in Italy and Spain. The fungus has a strong aroma and a unique mushroom taste. The truffle is very popular among epicureans; many Michelin star restaurants will offer this delicacy on their menu.
