Precious Truffles, Master Chefs & Superb Luxury

For five days in November, Zizi Restaurant located at Bellasera, the posh new SunStream boutique resort in Naples, Florida, will share its kitchen and dining rooms with master chefs from Italy and one of America's best know wine experts.

Five dinners, four lunches and daily culinary courses feature Italy's elusive white truffles paired with the best wines and presented by gourmets from the Italian Institute for Advanced Culinary and Pastry Arts (ICI), CondeNast Traveler magazine and Zizi's culinary team.

For those traveling from afar, Bellasera has designed several packages that include accommodations at the elegant resort.

 
Epicurean Dreaming...

Truffle dinners, fine wines, culinary master's programs and luxurious accommodations are only part of the White Truffle Event. During this unique social event, guests will dine with the same Epicurean luminaries that set the trends for fine dining.

ICI director John Nocita brings master chef Walter Zanoni and master patissier and baker Fabio Bertoni to join Zizi's executive chef Virgil Metcalf in preparing and presenting over forty classic and innovative dishes and desserts designed exclusively for the occasion. Special guest Joseph Ward, wine editor for CondeNast magazine, will share his expertise with pairing food and wine and the truths and myths that come with it.

Join us for the celebration with Italy's most elusive gourmet treasures in the grandest style!
