White truffles are amongst the most precious foods in the world. Even though Italy may already be famous and envied for it’s wines, cheeses, pizza and ice cream it is white truffles that the Italians truly consider the jewel in their gastronomic crown!
Their rarity, prestige and difficulty to cultivate has made white truffles one of the priciest ingredients on the planet. Some individual white truffles have even been sold for as much as $330,000! However this is not surprising since they cannot be planted and have to be ‘truffled’ out using trained pigs. Though dogs are being used more frequently these days as well.
For many truffles have simply been out of their price range, and with a kilo selling for over 10,000 Euros you can quite imagine that you’d find yourself on the wrong end of a farmers shotgun if you tried sniffing them out for yourself. However, Trivelli Tartufi of Roccafluvione, Italy is now working to bring them to aspiring and accomplished chefs around the globe.
