White, Black and Wonderful...

Truffles...need I say more? White truffles from Alba...Black truffles from Burgundy and various accoutrements to embellish and enhance. This sexy autumnal delicacy is sure to evoke that euphorically induced desire or sensual passion that some would say is like sex. Any way you want to describe it, it is surely nothing short of amazing. Here are but a few dishes crafted from this intoxicating tuber.
