Summer Truffle Fest 2018 at Eataly Chicago

Summer Truffle Fest 2018 at Eataly Chicago

Think truffles are only for the cooler months? Think again!

Native to Italy, the tuber aestivum is a black summer truffle that grows from May to September in the woodlands of the Piemonte, Emilia-Romagna, Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo, Campania, and Molise regions. Widely known by the name of scorzone, these black tubers are milder than their winter cousins, making them perfect for adding an exquisite touch to many summer dishes.

And this summer, for the first time ever, we're celebrating this unique variety of truffles with a summer truffle festival at Eataly Chicago starting on June 15, 2018! Every day we are trufflin' with complimentary tastings, a truffle cooking class, and shop all things truffle in our marketplace.


Saturday, June 23, 2018 | Second floor Tasting Lab

For one day only, get a FREE black summer truffle when you buy one 8.4-ounce bottle of Urbani black truffle oil or when you buy one pound of our housemade tagliatelle pasta and a wedge of Grana Padano DOP cheese. This combination is the perfect way to make a typical dish from Umbria, Tagliatelle alla Spoletina.

While supplies last; limited quantity!


Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 12 to 6 p.m. | Second floor marketplace, dry pasta

Join us for a special event at our Tasting Lab on the second floor to celebrate the new truffle season! We'll be offering a complimentary taste of our housemade black truffle agnolotti fresh pasta. No need to register for the event, simply stop by between 12 and 6 p.m. to truffle with us!
