White truffles already?

#1 Post by Warren Taranow » September 4th, 2019, 9:26 am

I received an offer today for Piedmont white truffles. I don’t recall seeing these before late September/early October. Does anyone have any insight into their early appearance, and the quality this season?
Thanks
Warren

What was the price? We are having a white truffle dinner the end of October.

It’s like Christmas. The ads used to start after Thanksgiving, now they seem to start early October.

I could agree with you, but then we both would be wrong.
