"New" Oil & Winter Truffle Dinner

January 24, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Featuring LA CANALA OLIVE OIL with Alberto Panella

Not yet available in the US, flown directly from the hills of Umbria, the new 2016 vintage of unfiltered and organic extra virgin olive oil. Be the first to taste this pungent “liquid gold” together with the “black diamonds” of Umbrian winter truffles. Delight in a tutorial by olive grove proprietor, Alberto Panella, as he tells of the culture and history of these 400 year old trees.

January marks a big festival happening near Florence in Cercina where our trattoria is located. We wait all year for "La Festa di Sant' Antonio," the Feast of St. Anthony. The locals bring their animals to church to be blessed after which they celebrate with "fett'unta" dipped in olio nuovo (new oil) from the recent olive harvest. We are having the new oil air shipped and are excitedly crafting our own for you to experience.
