On March 21 we will have a tasting with Avanti Savoia. The tasting will begin at 4 and will be the menu for the entire eve. Prices will vary and be based per serving. No advanced tickets needed.
Avanti is working on a menu as we speak! I’m really excited to see which pickles and antipasto they choose to share with us. If the olive oils they supplied for the olive oil tasting is any indication we are in for a real treat! We already source our White Truffle Salt from them. Knoxville is very lucky to have this hidden gem.
I first visited Avanti in September:
Avanti Savoia is an incredible, unassuming warehouse in Halls. Halls you say? What amazing food discovery could be in Halls? Well, Avanti Savoia. It is an importing business of the finest degree: olive oils, balsamic vinegar, pastas, salts, pickles, and hard cheese. The products are almost exclusively of the Italian variety, but not all.
For an hour andÂ half I toured their products and learned about a female Italian olive oil maker who is certified organic, I tasted aged balsamic which blew my taste buds away, and purchased some white truffle sea salt to test for Public House popcorn. Owned locally with the most friendly chef I’ve ever met on staff, this was the most fun afternoon I’ve had in a while. In addition to all the amazing goods they have to offer there are cooking classes!
Avanti Savoia is in located at 7610 Maynardville Pike. It is open to the public and has a website. Go visit!
