This week, Cavalli Club has claimed that it has received the largest and most expensive delivery of white truffle so far this season.

In the delivery is a whopping 504g white truffle, making it one of the biggest white truffles acquired by a restaurant in Dubai this year.

Earlier in November this year, Ronda Locatelli at Atlantis The Palm took delivery of a 610g white truffle (estimated to be 535g after cleaning), making it the biggest single white truffle known to have made its way to Dubai so far this year.
