Tartufo - Truffle


Like each Autumn: Truffles !!! (Who don't know what truffle is please click HERE). Here they were sold by Eataly at current price (yes you are reading correctly): € 650 / etto. It means 650 Euro per 100 grams = 3.5 Ounce. It's a bit "expensive" and more than black truffle but we are talking about the WHITE one, the most estimated.

Come ogni Autunno: i Tartufi !!! (Per chi non dovesse sapere cos'è un tartufo clicchi QUI). Questi sono venduti da Eataly al prezzo corrente (sì state vedendo bene) di: € 650 / etto. E' piuttosto caro e di certo più del tartufo nero ma stiamo parlando del tartufo BIANCO di certo il più pregiato.

Amazing that a fungus can fetch that much money!

Fabrizio, is it worth it? I'd like to taste one, just as I'd like to drink a thousand dollar bottle of wine. What if it is just that good.

Oh my, Fabrizo1 White truffles, no less. Delicious shaved on pasta. There's a restaurant in Monaco - an Italian restaurant, of course - called Gianni's. They serve wonderful pasta with white truffles...yummy...

Fabrizio, I am very sad to say that I have never had a true truffle, the jewel of the kitchen! Certainly a deprived person, right?!

This is the first time I've seen whole truffles!

They sure don't look very appetizing. Makes me wonder how people discovered they were edible in the first place.
