One of Dallas’ best chefs has a huge stash of Alba truffles for you

It’s been a long time since I last visited the original Preston Royal location of Princi Italia, but I continue to hear plenty of good things about this casual Italian restaurant and the food chef Kevin Ascolese produces there. From-scratch pastas. Stellar pizzas. Uncommonly good proteins.

Looks like I’m going to have to get there soon because Ascolese just unloaded a plane load of Alba truffles from Italy. He’s shaving them on those pastas, tossing them atop the pizzas and melting them into grilled meats. And I want all of that.

But those Alba beauties aren’t going to last long – probably just a week or two. And when Ascolese runs out, they’ll be gone until next year.
