As if the arrival of pumpkins in the grocery store wasn't enough to tick us off, now there's word of truffles coming into season. Can't we just enjoy our last weekend of summer in all it's sweaty seasonal glory before you start bombarding us with all this autumnal nonsense? Jeeze.

All kidding set aside, it is a bit early to be getting in the white truffles from Italy. But when nature calls, you listen. Chef Andrea Cavaliere over at Cecconi's has received their first-of-the-season shipment of white truffles, and will begin offering specials on the menu at the Northern Italian restaurant starting tonight.

In previous years, Cecconi's has done white truffle dinners and even white truffle-topped scrambled eggs. Chef Cavaliere, originally from Turin in Northern Italy, says that the truffles are hailing from Molise region and are super high quality. It's an "exceptional harvest," he says. They have been sourced from the guys from Campobosso (the capitol of Molise) known as the "The Truffle Brothers," Michael and Marco Pietroiacovo.
