Truffles will Share Spotlight with Famed Chef at Conference Gala

Attendees to this year's DiRōNA conference will have the good fortune of being treated to not just one of our Galas, but two--and one man will be at the center of them both. The evening before his induction into the DiRōNA Hall of Fame at this year's Grand Gala on September 22, famed Vancouver chef Pino Posteraro will be hard at work demonstrating his worthiness of such an honor.

On September 21, Chef Posteraro and his team will prepare an incredible Gala dinner of their own. The best part? All seven courses at this incredible event will utilize one of the world's most renowned delicacies--truffles! Urbani of Italy will be generously providing $70,000 worth of winter and summer truffles for the Gala. By itself, this dinner would cost patrons hundreds of dollars per person. However, thanks to Urbani of Italy and Chef Posteraro, it is included with your DiRōNA conference registration.

Thousands of dollars in truffles prepared by an award winning chef ... this is an event not to be missed!
