White Truffles for Winter
According to the New York Times, this season's imported white truffles from Italy are just beginning to hit the market in the U.S. and are probably already available in countries that are closer to Italy. It's hard to predict what the prices will do as the season wears on, but for the moment, the prices are about the same as last year's. Truffles only have a shelf life of a few days from receipt and should be shaved onto food as it is placed on the table for maximum effect. One-ounce is $169.
