Well it was a very upbeat event with a representative of Alba there, and sponsorship by the Piedmont tourist board, so of course there was general optimism.

As for San Domenico, I was reminded again of Tony May, at the end of evening service during the season, sitting down by himself at a table with the remnants of the night's truffles and a bowl of pasta, calmly grating himself a few dozen grams. :)
