Summer Truffle Fest 2018 at Eataly NYC Flatiron

Summer Truffle Fest 2018 at Eataly NYC Flatiron

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, Eataly is celebrating this unique variety of truffles with a summer truffle festival starting on June 15. Every day we are trufflin' with complimentary tastings, store-wide truffle events, truffle dishes in our restaurants, and all things truffle in our marketplace.


On June 22, we're declaring Truffle Day! Come out and get your truffle on with a black truffle festival and a truffle cooking class with our chefs. Here's what you can expect:


June 22 from 1 to 5 p.m. | La Piazza

Join us for a special event in La Piazza to celebrate the new truffle season. We'll be offering complimentary tastings of truffle dishes at our counters and serving up black truffle risotto out of a cheesy Grana Padano DOP wheel. No need to register for the event, simply stop by our store between 1 and 5 p.m. to truffle with us! P.S. The Grana Padano wheel opening will begin at 3 p.m. and last as long as we have risotto.


June 22, 6-8 p.m. | La Scuola

Have you ever wanted to learn the secrets of cooking with truffles the Italian way? In this 4-course dinner, our chef's will prepare four unique truffle dishes, each paired with a wine from Umbria. As you enjoy your meal and chat with others in the class, a truffle expert from Urbani will lead you through everything you need to know about black summer truffles, from their history and origins to tips for cooking with them in your own kitchen at home.

Reserve your seat at the table.



Friday – Sunday, 1-6 p.m. | Manzo

Whether you are an experienced truffle lover, or you have never cooked a truffle before in your life, fresh whole black summer truffles are perfect for trying with something new! Stop by La Tartuferia, our dedicated wine and truffle counter featuring fresh, whole black summer truffles and wines by the glass.
