Black Truffle Festival at Eataly Chicago

Black Truffle Festival 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.

From June 14 to 23, we're celebrating this unique variety of truffles with an epic festival in our marketplace featuring complimentary tastings, educational events, and seasonal offers.

Read on to explore the upcoming events!


June 14 to 23

Don't miss your chance to taste this unique tuber, which is in season only a few months out of the year!
