Our whole eight-day journey will cover three different destinations including the Lake Maggiore & Como areas, Alba county and Milan city. This will offer a good mix of beautiful countryside scenery, gourmet dining and sophisticated shopping in a metropolitan city.

The trip will also be a perfect opportunity for us to tuck into the great feasts of white truffle, in the land where these delicacies originate from. Fresh and authentic from Alba, the white truffle cuisines will be prepared by master chefs whose cooking skills are passed down and perfected through the generations. We’re real foodies so picking the date of travel to savour the finest, in-season white truffle is serious business!

Some of you may have heard of the “White Truffle Festival” in Alba commencing on 7 Oct this year with a donkey race and medieval costume parade. But the real great stuff would only be harvested in early November. For those who are unaware of its true value, Macau casino tycoon Stanley Ho paid over HK$1 million for the tuber, weighing 1,000 grams of it. Connoisseurs say the best white truffle weighs only about 40 grams and is the size of golf ball packing the most intense flavours. We will order white truffles of this optimal size for all the four truffle meals that we will be having. Each guest in our group will be treated to 50 grams costing around HK$5,000. Besides truffle, we will also be tasting snails, cadon (local vegetables), trout caught from wild rivers and the freshest shrimps and fish from the Mediterranean Sea.

To ensure the meals suit our Asian palates, I was in Italy recently to meet with the chefs of different restaurants and choose menus to ensure culinary variety, complete with the most compatible wine pairings.

So look forward to our truffle and other gourmet attractions which will leave you memories of a lifetime!

All the destination activities listed in the itinerary are covered, along with the gourmet dinners with wine pairings mentioned.
