Umbria Blog | White Truffle market in Città di Castello

Each year at the end of October Città di Castello celebrates the white truffle with a market dedicated to this precious delicacy. From October 28 to November 1, 2016 was the 37th edition of this truffle market, Il Tartufo Bianco. One sells not only white truffle from Umbria but also delicacies from other regions in Italy like herbs, Sicilian cannoli, olives from Puglia and much more, often accompanied by local wines.

North Umbria is known for its white and black truffle. I find truffle one of the best ingredients in my food, hence I often use truffle for pasta sauce, in risotto or for meat dishes. Truffle sauces are not made with only truffles, but are mixed with different flavors.

Black truffles, and especially white truffles, aren’t cheap. Bruno from Giuliani Tartufi explains us in this video that they sell the best truffles for an attractive price. Feel free to visit their website for more information!

  1. We had a lot of good food which had Truffle as an ingredient last summer in Citta della Pieve. The people there were proud of truffles. I guess its a lot of cities in Umbria that are just as proud.
