International Urbani Tartufi Truffle Contest

Devin Davis and Kirsten Mathers recently returned from Perugia, Italy where they competed in the Urbani Tartufi Truffle Contest. Clyde Tanner, academic department director-culinary at Art Institute of Tampa, surprised Davis and Mathers by telling them in November that he volunteered them to represent the Tampa campus in a truffle contest. ” Davis and Mathers made a truffle-stuffed rabbit loin with braised rabbit leg, fresh spinach pasta, fried quail egg, truffle jus and shaved black truffles and a truffle soufflé with hazelnut syrup, truffle brown-sugar crumble and truffle ice cream.
