Black Truffles at DiVino Group

    Available from January 6 through March 31, 2020, Spasso, DiVino, DiVino Patio and Carpaccio restaurants will feature a selection of dishes that showcase the prize-winning black winter truffles or ‘Tartufo Nero’ from Norcia in Umbria.

    During the black truffle season, an array of specifically designed dishes will be available, each showcasing the unique flavour of these intensely pungent and fruity truffles adding a rich intensity to any dish. Unlike the white truffle, the black truffle’s flavours are optimised when gently heated or cooked,

    “It’s a joy to cook with these delicious truffles and introduce their incredible flavours to our customers,” explains Chef Michele. “As we pursue a ‘No Menu, No Limitations, No Rules’ approach to our craft, we are free to tailor our use of the truffles to the exact taste and preference of our diners. I’m looking forward to coming up with recommendations and combinations that will really surprise and challenge people’s palates!”
