If you are so lucky as to try a fresh white or black truffle through the winter months and holiday season, be sure that your source is reliable, such as Eataly, Tartuflanghe, D’Artagnan, or, best of all, one of your chef buddies — they always have ethical sources.
This past week, I had the honor to be included in a very small white-truffle tasting and wine pairing at Nick and Toni’s, organized by Chimene Visser MacNaughton, the restaurant’s sommelier; Neal Rosenthal of Rosenthal Wine Merchant Ltd., Jacques Franey of Domaine Franey, and Joe Realmuto, the chef. Neal had just arrived with the truffles from Piedmont and products from Tartuflanghe.
