Vietnam Dinner

Bailliage of Vietnam
Hanoi, November 19, 2022

Focus on Alba white truffles
" another wonderful event in the annals of the National Bailliage of Vietnam "

Our Bailliage hosted an Alba truffle dinner at Cugini Restaurant in Hanoi owned by Executive Chef Nico Ceccomoro, who is a Maître Rôtisseur.

Eighteen very lucky members and guests enjoyed the first Alba white truffles of the season in exquisite splendour. The Bailliage was able to secure 600g of this special delight for this truly unique event.

Indeed, this batch of truffles was very special. The rare variety with the highly sought-after reddish colour inside indicated their quality enhancing the level of the evening’s enjoyment.
