WFFC I HEART FLVR Celebrating the Taste of Truffles

On the evening of October 7th, 2014 the WFFC hosted the “I Heart FLVR Celebrating the Taste of Truffles” event at the Consulate of France on Fifth Avenue in New York City. One hundred industry members attended this delightful taste education and networking event. Attendees sampled an enchanting menu crafted by Feasts & Fêtes Catering featuring Urbani truffles in each bite. The hors d’oeuvres were paired with wine and champagne selected by John Wright, Flavorist and author of Flavor Creation. The charming speakers of the evening were Vittorio Giordano, Vice President of Urbani Truffles and Marie Wright, Vice President, Chief Global Flavorist at Wild Flavors. Vittorio, a truffle expert, spoke of the truffle selection process, shared a short video, and entertained questions from the audience. Marie related personal experiences to the importance of creativity in the sciences. She explained how innovative failures lead to success and how necessary it is to take risks. Marie united her creativity and scientific knowledge to create Natural and N&A truffle flavors, which were passed around on blotters for attendees to smell. The WFFC is thankful to all members for their continued support and making this event a sucess. The event was made possible through the generous partnerships with Allen Flavors, Inc., Bontoux, Inc., Comax Flavors, Robertet and Wild Flavors, Inc.
