Grub Street Plays Cupid With Tartufo Bianco and Gavin Kaysen

By
Gavin Kaysen, his GM, and a serious truffle.

Last week, we told you about an enormous truffle that needed a good home, chef or civilian, and today we hear that our matchmaking efforts led to the marriage of Gavin Kaysen of Café Boulud and a beautiful, two-pound white truffle from Urbani. The final price, which started with bids at $13K, is undisclosed, but a source says Kaysen dug deep into his pockets (er, Monsieur Boulud's) for this baby. You can thank us later for that risotto.
