Annual White Truffle 5 Course Dinner at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne
Sazoneros!! Last year, I had the opportunity to attend the most amazing dinner experience: a 5 course white truffle dinner at the Ritz-Carlton in Key Biscayne. In case you haven't heard the news, October actually marks the peaks of truffle season, when Alba, Italy proudly captivates the gastronomic world with its fresh crop of the rare and highly coveted White Truffle Mushrooms, also known as the “Diamonds of the Kitchen”. On Wednesday, November 19th, Sommelier Jorge Mendoza, Executive Chef Clayton van Hooijdonk and special guest Fiorenzo Dogliani of Batasiolo SpA winery presents a five-course pairing menu of fine delicacies. Dogliani brings with him vertical vintage wines from past decades of the Crus of Barolo, sourced directly from the private library at Batasolio SpA, as well as a selection of white truffles freshly gathered from his homeland. Guests will be guided through these rare wines, each expertly matched with the earthy, woody flavors of white truffles, shaved a la minute on the restaurant’s open kitchen, marble display.
The welcome reception and greeting with Fiorenzo Dogliani will begin at 7 p.m., followed by a five-course dinner ($240 per person, plus tax and gratuity.) Reservations are very limited with only 60 spaces available. For reservations, please contact (305) 365-4286. Cioppino at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami is located at 455 Grand Bay Drive, Key Biscayne. See you there and get ready for a life-altering foodie experience!!
