The recent talk of truffles has given me the idea of buying a small amount to try at home. It seems as if this would be a good cost-saving alternative to ordering a shaving of truffles at a restaurant for more than $150..am I wrong on this?
I know that Buon Italia sells white Alba truffles (more than $3,000) per pound!! What would be the best place in Manhattan to buy a tiny truffle to serve at home? Does anyone have experience with SOS Chefs in the EV?
Is there a huge difference in aroma/taste between white and black truffles?
I was thinking of shaving over a simple pasta. Good idea?
