Insider’s View / November 2014

Autumnal Favorites

“Although spot prawn season is winding down at the end of October, we are enjoying Autumn’s arrival of white truffles,” says Chef Michael Cimarusti. The intoxicating aroma and sublime flavor of white truffles will be featured in dishes on the menu such as Raviolo all’ Uovo, Pasta alla Chitarra, White Truffle Risotto, and Soft Scrambled Eggs with a Fondue of Reblochon de Savoie and Shaved White Truffle. Chef Michael will also offer a White Truffle Menu Spontanée. The season runs from October to mid or late December. Michael is also very enthusiastic about the top quality matsutake mushrooms now available. Be sure to experience these incomparable delicacies at Providence before they vanish for another year.
