Hubbell & Hudson won the top spot in The 2018 Truffle Masters on Jan. 29, an annual competition held by DR Delicacy.

Last year, Chef Austin Simmons took home the People’s Choice award with his Oyster & Truffle Potage. Last night, he and our team competed with a French Grilled Cheese sandwich: shaved truffle, house cultured cream, comté, aged gruyère and clarified butter on a toasted brioche.
