Alba Truffle Tasting Menu
For truffle lovers and those who have never tried them, Can Domingo is the best place to sample the incredible taste sensation of the rare Alba truffle. The location is exquisite – an old finca lovingly restored set amid organic gardens only moments from Ibiza town yet tucked away like a hidden sanctuary of peace and tranquillity. Chef, Beppe Vivacqua, has been planning for the imminent arrival of the truffles for months. The excitement coursing through the Can Domingo team is palpable.
Truffle hunters and their trusted dogs harvest these precious culinary gems in the country just outside the Piedmont city of Alba. Earlier this year Beppe befriended a jolly farmer and his loyal truffle dog. He just happened to be one of the most prolific truffle hunters in the Alba region and now Can Domingo have a direct line to these lovely morsels of deliciousness. Can Domingo will create a special tasting menu based around the white truffles and featuring traditional Italian dishes created by the chef from Turin, such as homemade Tagliolini with truffle, and egg with cheese fondue and truffle.
