"In Piedmont there is Tomimatsu."
There is a Japanese man in Alba who loves truffles. Tsuneomi Tomimatsu, a 20-year resident of Piedmont, is the only Japanese truffle hunter officially certified by the province and a knight of wine.In Japan, his white truffles from the suburbs of Aruba are rumored to be of unparalleled quality, and many of the best restaurants in Japan are eagerly awaiting his truffles.
The theme of this event is to compare the last white truffle of the season, which will be hunted to an end on January 31, the winter truffle, which is in season now, and the other truffles with all five senses.This is a special event where you can compare not only special white truffles from the last day of harvest near Piedmont, the highest peak of the country, but also several types of truffles that are conventionally rare to find due to their freshness and seasonality.
And the cuisine is a new genre of "Tokyo Cuisine," a fusion of Japanese, Western, and French cuisine by Nanahiro Takahashi of atirom Tokyo. This is a premium course that allows you to experience truffles to the fullest. Wine pairing is also available, with a selection of wines by Mr. Tomimatsu, a knight of wine, that will make you feel the current Piedmont.
