Join us for a special evening celebrating Northern Italy’s most luxurious ingredient—the truffle. We start with a presentation at the Danny Kaye Theatre, where experts from the evening’s sponsor, Sabatino Tartufi, will share insights about this rare and flavorful ingredient. Then it’s off to dinner at Ristorante Caterina de’ Medici for a succulent meal inspired by truffles and the wines that love them.

Sabatino Tartufi would like to offer you a very special opportunity to purchase some of its world-renowned preserved products at a 20% discount. Pick up truffle infused-oils, seasonings, and condiments. They are the perfect gift for the foodie in your life. The offer runs from December 1–31. Use coupon code TrufflesCIA.
