Eataly, the popular authentic Italian restaurant and market located on the ground floor of Dubai Mall has launched a Truffle Restaurant, dedicated to discovering the Umbrian white truffle, which comes into season in November.
In celebration of the truffle, often called the ‘diamond of the kitchen’, a series of Michelin-star chef masterclasses were held last week as part of the Italian Cuisine World Summit 2015.
The chefs prepared a selection of truffle dishes over a period of three days (October 28 – 30), with guests welcomed to sample and learn more about the flavour and cooking techniques of the truffle.
Partnering with Urbani Tartufi, one of the most prestigious truffle distributors in the world, Eataly’s permanent Truffle Restaurant will bring the best selection of white truffles to fine food lovers in Dubai. Welcoming three guest Michelin star chefs to Eataly to host the masterclasses – Chef Guiseppe Stanzione, Chef Tano Simonato, and Chef Allesandro Badro cooked up a series of truffle based dishes using their expertise of the rare ingredient.
Chef Hadi El Awar of Eataly commented: “Truffle season is upon us and we are very excited to launch Eataly’s new permanent Truffle Restaurant in celebration of this beautiful ingredient. As part of this, we are delighted to welcome three of Italy’s most celebrated master chefs as part of the Italian Cuisine World Summit to cook these delicacies and show to our guest’s how to bring out the sublime flavor of the truffles we have available.”
