ABOUT TRUFFLES


Urbani Truffle Academy, the first of its kind in the world, hosts international culinary events, showcasing the art of cooking truffle, cultural soirees, and a truffle lab where chefs experiment and invent truffle-based culinary delights. At the Urbani Truffle Academy research is with no end in sight and always ongoing: trial combinations, blend of tastes, textures, colors aimed at the discovery of flavors and aromas that capture the palate. With the Truffle Academy, Urbani has become a point of reference for chefs and truffle lovers from around the world. The academy is the ideal place for those who want to know about the history, origins and possibilities of use of this precious fruit of land in the culinary field. The Truffle Academy is a gastronomic center where everyone brings together their own knowledge and expertise about truffles; this is where Urbani new products are born, following the chefs’ creativity and according to new food technologies and techniques and a careful observation of the markets’ changes and needs.

The Truffle Academy is a gastronomic center where everyone brings together their own knowledge and expertise about truffles; this is where Urbani new products are born, following the chefs’ creativity and according to new food technologies and techniques and a careful observation of the markets’ changes and needs. Urbani Truffle Academy is a place where flavor profiles are constantly redefined to enrich your palate and the culture of good taste. The Academy building is a glass structure open to the outdoors. The basic idea of Urbani Tartufi was to create a new building, which would help us remember our social responsibility towards the outside world; Urbani is thus not only a company, but a vehicle of information about truffles open to all. The absence of closed spaces within the Urbani Truffle Academy puts the focus on the importance of an environment that can be shared openly, encouraging collaboration and exchange in an informal and dynamic setting. It is the international chefs, experts, amateurs or students, who define the terms for working together and not the architects who designed the space they work in.
