Symbol of the chocolate excellence in the world, Chocolate Truffle founds its roots in Piedmont territory. It summarises the typical flavours and perfumes of this area, with its unique recipe made of fine chocolate and hazelnuts from Piedmont. A true gastronomy icon completely “Made in Italy” and, as every star deserves, a special day to celebrate it: Saturday, 27th of October.
This is the date chosen for the Tartufo Day, a moment dedicated to gluttons that want to celebrate a product capable to embrace heart and tradition of Turin chocolate history. With numerous special initiatives, like production site visits, tasting of chocolate truffles in fine restaurants and so on.
“Tartufo Day will be a moment to spread culture over a typical product of Piedmont tradition and at the same, a way to narrate how its dna keeps changing and evolving through modern interpretation to meet up to date tastes and international incentives.”
These are Sergio Arzilli’s words, founder of La Perla di Torino, one of the biggest actors in the chocolate truffles environment that, over the years, understood how to valorize a product through traditional and innovative recipes.
“We wanted to establish the Tartufo Day – continues Arzilli – to celebrate one of the most iconic product of our territory. And for sure, it identifies our image. Through the chocolate truffle, we won many important goals, one of the latest is the Master of Tastes of Torino recognition.”
Discovering an artisanal knowledge behind an excellent production
In the occasion of the Tartufo Day, Saturday 27th of October, La Perla di Torino will open its doors for a visit to discover the chocolate world and its production.
