Quattro at Four Seasons Hotel Houston, 1300 Lamar, will be hosting an Evening of Wine & Truffles on Sunday, January 31 at 6 p.m. Executive chef Maurizio Ferrarese has created an exciting six-course tasting menu, with each course incorporating shavings of exotic Italian truffles and matching wine.

The cost for the entire event, wines included, is $90 per person plus tax and gratuity. Space is limited and reservations are required. Call 713-276-4700 or reserve your spot through Open Table (note Truffle Degustation).

This one features a “France versus Italy” culinary tour of the city from chef Maurizio Ferrarese (Quattro) and David Denis (Le Mistral). The tour will be held on Sunday, March 6 – but get your tickets now, as these tours always sell out fast.
