2011_white_truffles_ruan1.jpgNow that we're in the midst of white truffle season, Ryan Sutton is asking chefs and restaurateurs to explain why their pricey truffle dishes are "worth it." First up is Chris Jaeckle, who defends the $115 seven gram supplement at Ai Fiori: "French-Italian Riviera-based cuisine is an inviting canvas for the addition of such a bold, earthy flavor. With such limited availability, truffles are an ideal complement to the celebratory nature of the season.” [The Price Hike]
