Truffles…little balls of decadence, highly aromatic and highly prized. CinCin’s annual Mushroom & Truffle Festival is now on until November 30. Black and white truffles or “the miracle in black and white” have been carefully sourced and hand-selected for this special menu.
CinCin Truffle Dinner 2019, in conjunction with the festival, took place this past week and featured an evening of autumn flavours, fragrant funghetti and delicious wines. Here’s a recap of the evening.
