Some of Urbani’s preserved truffle products.
|All certified U.S.-based chefs (working chefs or chefs with formal culinary education) are invited to enter the first annual “Urbani Truffles Academy Grant” program, created to inspire creativity in the use of truffles by U.S.-based chefs. To enter, simply submit an original recipe using truffles and answer a brief questionnaire. The grand prize winning chef will win a one-week stay at Urbani’s Accademia del Tartufo in Umbria, Italy where he/she will learn the elusive art of truffle sourcing, distribution and preparation. Three first prize winners will receive Urbani preserved products (valued at $1,500) and an Urbani truffle recipe book (valued at $30). Ten second prize winners will receive Urbani preserved products (valued at $500).|
|If you’re not a professional chef but know chefs, encourage them enter. If they win a prize….well, you’ll be owed a great truffle dinner. All submissions must be received by December 15, 2007. Further details and submission forms can be found UrbaniGrant.com. Urbani Tartufi (Italian for truffles), founded more than 150 years ago in Umbria, Italy, controls more than half of the global truffle business in both fresh truffles and preserved truffle products.
