[Webinar] Cooking with Truffles, Made Easy

January 16 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm EST

View Recording

Are you swimming in truffles (as we all aspire to be!) and don’t know what to do with the bounty? Or are you experimenting with your first truffle in the kitchen and don’t know where to start? Or have you had one too many truffle dishes at a fancy restaurant, but still haven’t hit that pleasure spot?

This seminar is for you. In an hour of interactive and entertaining back-and-forths, Susi Gott Séguret will talk about how to put your truffle immediately to work for you, some simple do’s and don’ts to get the most out of your prize, seasonal ingredient pairings, matching flavor profiles, and what wines you might throw into the mix with the truffle species you have in your pantry.

For those who are extra adventurous, some simple hands-on recipes will be demonstrated, and you are invited to cook along or sit back with a glass in hand and drool. (Ingredient list for the adventurous will be sent out in advance of the seminar.)

Please enroll in the webinar so you receive the shopping list and recipes a few weeks before the webinar.  Webinars are free to NATGA members, so be sure to renew your membership if you haven’t already!
