Truffle Fest at Eataly Chicago

Truffle Fest 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! Every day we are trufflin' with complimentary tastings, truffle cooking classes, truffle dishes in our restaurants, and special offers in our marketplace.

CELEBRATE TRUFFLE DAY

On Saturday, June 23, we're declaring Truffle Day! Come out and get your truffle on with a black truffle festival, Scuola cooking class with our chefs, and an incredible offer of fresh truffles. Here's what you can expect:

GET A FREE WHOLE BLACK SUMMER TRUFFLE 

Saturday, June 23, all day

For one day only, get a free whole 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.

BLACK TRUFFLE FESTA

Saturday, June 23 from 12 to 8 p.m. | Tasting Lab

Join us for a special event at our Tasting Lab on the second floor to celebrate the new truffle season!

No need to register for the event, simply stop by our tasting lab between 12 and 8 p.m. to truffle with us!
