DiBruno Bros. Presents Truffle Mania

A six-day celebration of the Alba truffle

This week, Di Bruno Bros is hosting samplings, meals, information sessions and a contest all in celebration of a 300g white truffle worth $5,000 they bought for charity (that’s it pictured above, and its name is Bruno). And while it might not look like much, it is essentially the diamond of the food world owing to its rarity and supposed aphrodisiac properties. Here’s how you can get involved:
