The White Truffle of Alba is a gastronomic delicacy and is usually consumed with fried eggs, with Pasta Tagliolini (Tajarin in Piedmontese dialect), in risotto or meats that do not have a too pronounced flavor (it is recommended, do not combine it with foods that have a lot of acidity or a flavor that is too strong, because it would risk covering the delicate flavor of the White Truffle). The Fresh Truffles are thinly sliced with the typical "truffle cutter".
The Alba White Truffle is widespread in the Langhe, Roero, and Monferrato Territories, and every year in Alba, the International Alba White Truffle Fair takes place, the main Italian Showcase of High Gastronomy with Visitors from numerous foreign countries. Also in Piedmont, at the Castle of Grinzane Cavour, the World Auction of the White Truffle of Alba is held every year and with the support of the most recent digital technologies, even in times of distancing and social restrictions, the event has always maintained smooth running.
