The almighty white truffle

White truffle season got off to a shaky start thanks to Italy's unusual September weather conditions. Since white truffles cannot be cultivated, the country's higher-than-average temperatures and lack of rain are adding another level of complexity to the in-demand luxury commodity.

Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach is serving up two decadent truffled dishes: agnolotti dal plin with lamb and minted bread crumbs ($90); and tagliolini with melted cherry tomatoes and Parmigiano ($90). Diners may also order supplemental shavings on any dish for $75. 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-674-4660
