The White Truffle of Alba


The White Truffle of Alba - before it became one of the biggest draws to the Piedmontese terrain and one of the most sought-after gourmet products in the world - had to first be seen on the tables of Hollywood - particularly those of Alfred Hitchcock and Marlene Dietrich. The white truffle is one of the most refined gastronomic delicacies, the cost of which can sometimes reach higher than that of diamonds. Finally, it began to gain international fame in the 1930s, when a restaurateur, understanding its significance, decided to give it a name designating its worth: the White Truffle of Alba.
