Black Truffle Festival at Eataly NYC Flatiron

Black Truffle Festival 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.

From June 14 to 23, 2019 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 15, 2019 from 5-7 p.m. 

Kick off the start of the Black Summer Truffle Festival with a special launch event on Saturday, June 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. Together with our partners Urbani Truffles and Grana Padano, we'll be cracking open a wheel of Grana Padano cheese and serving up Black Truffle Risotto out of the wheel in La Piazza. Get a taste of the risotto with freshly shaved truffles on top for just $5. No need to register for the event, simply stop by La Piazza between 5 and 7 p.m. to truffle with us!
