italy_alba_white-truffle2Some foodie fests are more historic than others: since this is the 84th year for the International Alba White Truffle Fair, it definitely qualifies.

Road Trips Foodies need to set their sites on Alba, Italy, between October 11 and November 16, 2015. The fair includes everything from truffle analysis to cooking demonstrations to wine tastings.

The market is, of course, the centerpiece of the event. It’s the place to come to find out everything there is to know about the truffle by immersing yourself in a unique and headily scented atmosphere.

Every truffle on sale at the market has been checked by a special commission before the market opens to the public, and this group of experts will also be available for consultation at the Consumer Help Desk inside the pavilions. The Truffle Market offers visitors the chance to see, touch and smell many, many truffles, sold directly by trustworthy vendors and local truffle hunters.

The Truffle Market is also home to the stands of the AlbaQualità food and wine exhibition. Here you can discover wines from the Langhe and Roero, local artisanal confectionery, cheeses, egg pastas, cured meats and other food products from this area.

Lovers of the Langhe and Roero’s cuisine can also enjoy a bite to eat at the restaurant area within the Fair’s pavilions. Alba white truffles can also be bought from the town’s specialty stores throughout the autumn.
