I'm headed to the market this weekend to try and score some. I'm going to buy some oil and authentic balsamic vinegar as well. Screw the turkey, risotto with white alba truffles sounds much more interesting for xmas. Who knows if I'll have any luck, but we shall see. Montreal is a good food town so I'm hopeful. My only decision is if I find them, do I hog them all to myself and eat truffle dishes for a week straight, or share them at my dinner party? In the meantime, I shall be perfecting my risotto and attempting a couple of Keller's recipes sans-truffles, so that I don't botch the recipes if/when I manage to acquire them. Btw has anyone tried white oregon truffles? They apparently have a different taste from the italian variety, but do manage to stand on their own merits. If I can get the italian variety I won't be trying them this weekend, but their season is longer so maybe in a few weeks.
