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

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