It’s truffle time in Gubbio!

This weekend sees the 35th National Exhibition of White Truffles and Agro-food Products being held in the Piazza Grande, Gubbio. This event is organised by the Upper Umbria Mountain Community. The mayor and the Municipal Manager, Ubaldo Casoli, opened the festival and over 40 exhibitors from all over Italy are taking part. There is a focus on recipes that combine street food with Italian food specialities, the festival providing a showcase for gastronomy celebrating the ‘King of the Table’. The price of the truffles ranges from 700 Euros per kg for black and 1200 for the white up to an astonishing 5,000 Euros per kg! Thanks to our friend Matilde in Gubbio for the photos and the information.
