I want to try Truffles but I don't know where
I want to try this extremely expensive and sought after Fungi but I don't know where. I am a foodie like most of you and I want to at least try it once in my life.
A disclaimer first: I assume you mean white truffles, or more specifically: Tuber Magnatum Pico.
That being the case, I'm afraid too late right now, you'll have to wait 'till next season (Nov-Dec 2007).
By that time post again, C'Hounders will surely point the way to the saint Grial.
Melisse has an all-truffle menu. You can smell it when you walk in the door.
PS- if you are given the option to add white truffles to your pasta or risotto in a restaurant, ask how much it is first. If it's more than $35 it's too much IMO. Order them online, get a truffle shaver, store them in dry rice, and shave them over fresh pasta.
Best at the moment are at:
VALENTINO (best of 06')
ANGELINI ** (two weeks ago)
(been to ***for truffle testing in the last week)
