On November 1ST The Finest White Truffles from Abruzzo will Grace a Spectacular Menu of Italian Dishes Served with Optional Wine Pairings
Executive Chef Hugo Vasquez of TOSCANA. Chef Hugo has been an integral part of TOSCANA for over 25 years, starting in the back kitchen and learning the art of Tuscan cooking at the side of the renowned Chef Agostino Sciandri.
TOSCANA announces autumn in Southern California with the arrival of the finest white truffles imported from Abruzzo, Italy. Supplied by Ariola Imports, the fragrant white truffles will be hand-shaved over a selection of Executive Chef Hugo’s delicately prepared dishes. The menu is designed to showcase the extraordinary character of this highly prized and valued tuber that has a following of aficionados tantalized by generous shavings on foods ranging from fresh eggs to Kobe beef.
