Truffle Hunting and late Nov Fairs in Piemonte
Does anyone know of a guide, or a guide source, to go on a truffle hunt in Piemonte? We will be there this year in November. Pretty open on location as the trip details are still mostly unplanned. There is a post to chowhound from 2007 (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/380747) with some good leads, but I figured it was old enough it was woth asking again.
Also, the most likely weekend for us in the area is November 20th. Anyone know of a good truffle fair that weekend? The big Alba and Asti fairs will not be going. I did find a coulpe smaller looking ones but not really find any details to know what to expect:
San Sebastiano Curone truffle fair: http://www.comunesansebastianocurone....
Murisengo truffle fair:
Thanks! There is a lot of great info on hear about the area and I am really looking forward to it!
if you look at my post from last year about the Piedmont Truffle Fair schedule, the fairs are held on the same weekend each year, you just have to extrapolate which date. I.e. Asti's truffle fair is every 3rd weekend in November, which this year will fall on 19th and 20th of November. Acqui Terme, Casale M. and Castelnuovo Don Bosco will be on 27th.
Some time later in the year I will post this years definite schedule.
