The special cooking lesson with truffles for St. Valentine’s Day with Secret Valley School of Gastronomy, organized by Janice Ruffle Kavallares with support of Truffle Store.

By tradition of Truffle Store we started from appetizers. We used crackers with mascarpone cheese, artichokes with truffles from Martelli Fabiano, made with Italian freshly cooked artichokes and black Summer truffles from Umbria region of Italy.

We made rich and aromatic sauce with Geofoods’ Salsa Tartufata (Champignon and Italian black Summer truffle) and Truffle Butter from Martelli Fabiano for tagliatelle. And we served with pure black Summer truffle pate from Geofoods. What’s an amazing combination!

Special thanks to Chef George Halkides for such an inspiring lesson and for choosing the products of our Truffle Store for his kitchen!

We are glad that all participants have got new gastronomic knowledge and cooking experience. We are happy that you enjoyed with us!
