Febbraio / February 3-16
The food of Umbria relies on the ingredients found in its rolling countryside. Central to any menu from the region is the black truffle, or tartufo nero; those from Norcia & Spoleto are especially prized. Black truffles are featured in several of tonight’s dishes including the Salmone Tartufato.
