Beware of truffles at Craft!

RicRios | Aug 27, 2008 06:46 AM

Yesterday, at Craft.
Waiter says "We have white truffles".
I ask "From where?"
Waiter says : "Alba, Italy".
I say: "Too early".
Waiter says: "This ones are the first, just arrived."

Preposterous. Of course we declined.
I couldn't resist emailing today to my truffles contact in Italy.
Contact says : No way, nothing until October at best ("Settembre è un mese di fermo biologico").

Now, question: does Colicchio need to push Chinese or God Knows what stuff as the real thing? Shame on you, Mister!
