Like the dogs who sniff out the white truffles in Italy at this time of year, I can sense when the earthy delights have arrived in Las Vegas. I can’t explain my affection for this rare and expensive fungus that grows under the roots of trees, mostly oaks. I only know that the pungent, complex flavor of the white truffle is one of my favorite things.
