Truffin’ It

Joy of my life- my favorite Austin restaurant, ASTI, is having another White Truffle Weekend this weekend! I’m so happy because I thought I’d missed it and after seeing Wednesday’s Top Chef season premiere, I’m in a gourmet mood.
From the email:

Menu to include Malpec Oysters on halfshell with Truffle Zabaglione & Truffle($30)-Warm Endive Salad with Fontina Cheese & poached Egg with Truffles($28)-Chicken Braciola with Soft Polenta & Mascarpone with Truffles($48)-Housemade Potato Gnocchi with Butter Parmesan & Truffles.
Truffles will be shaved tableside for the true experience and up close look at the Truffle d’Alba.
This prized Piedmontese Fungi is one of the most amazing culinary ingredients-and one of the most expensive at $2000 a pound.

I might have to live on Easy Mac (manna for the collegiate masses) for a couple weeks after this, but something tells me it’s going to be worth it for a lovely evening- The Prestige is finally out and I get to eat truffles with my most beloved foodie! Fun. :o)
