Almost a month ago, Bill de Blasio, the recently elected mayor of New York, was awarded an $8,000 italian truffle. He then generously donated this rare turtufa, to my school! My principal, Roger Turgeon, accepted this gift and told the entire school that we would be eating it! Since this truffle is from italy, why not cook an italian dish? The faculty, staff, and students enjoyed delicious pasta topped off with a small shaving of this delicious mushroom. Below is a link where we were featured in the Daily News!
