Cooking with Fresh Truffles (2nd Date) – SOLD OUT

November 29, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


White  truffles are now in season, so it’s the perfect time to join us for this introduction to cooking and entertaining with truffles, hosted by Toronto’s First Lady of Truffles herself: Wanda Srdoc! Wanda is a fifth generation truffle producer & importer whose family are from Istia, a mountainous peninsula region where northern Italy, Croatia and Slovenia meet.

Tonight Wanda will be joined by a very special guest, her mom Anita, who will show us how to make her famous homemade gnocchi from scratch. Wanda and Anita will also be joined by chef Cosimo Ieraci.

During this laid back, interactive event you’ll learn how to properly handle, store and work with truffles. We’ll also demonstrate some fool-proof dishes you can make at home to impress your guests. From appetizers to mains and even desserts, cooking with truffles is simpler and less expensive than you might think!

The menu for the evening will include:

Wanda’s popcorn di tartufo (truffle popcorn) & complementary Capo Capo Spritz when guests arrive

Tagliere di tartufo — mixed antipasto tray featuring meats, cheeses and preserves, featuring truffle-fused honey and truffle pâté

Bruschetta al tartufo nero — black truffle bruschetta, served with butternut squash purée and asparagus florets with truffle oil

Gnocchi al tartufo bianco e nero — Homemade gnocchi made two ways: with black truffle tomato sauce and with white truffle cream

Palacinke – Croatian-style crêpes served with truffle-apricot-fig jam

A selection of Wanda’s fresh truffles and truffle products will be available for purchase at the event.
