Because they are such a rare and expensive treat in the culinary world, a recent White Truffle Dinner at Amore by Wegmans drew more than 65 attendees. Chef Pasquale Sorrentino of Amore and visiting Chef Daniel Chavez-Bello of New York's Bouley created a five-course menu to pair with a selection of Michele Chiarlo wines. Guiding diners - including Danny Wegman - through the night's gourmet pairing experience was Massimiliano Galvano, brand ambassador for Michele Chiarlo.
The Boomtown team was invited to photograph behind-the-scenes as the Amore staff worked with deft skill and speed through the night to prep, plate, serve and refill (they even had time to snap a photo or two of their impressive work).
Amore at Wegmans is located in the East Avenue Wegmans downtown and open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday. Future events, include "eat and learn" classes, can be found here.
Note: Boomtown did not pay to attend this event. Thank you to Amore & Michele Chiarlo for inviting us!
