Patina Truffle Tasting Dinner – If it’s Not Too Much Truffle…

Patina Truffle Tasting: Milk Fed Veal Tenderloin with Truffle Jus

Not moments after marvelling at this 60 Minutes segment on what Brillat-Savarin calls the “diamond of the kitchen,” there was a text message, a pick-up in a car from a place that wasn’t our home, and we find ourselves sitting down for a multi-course Truffle Tasting dinner.

Coincidence? …

I hope not.

Tonight, I plan to watch a video about a closet full of Louboutins.
