Widely known as The Diamonds of the Gourmet World, truffles have become one of the most expensive food items on the planet because they're challenging to grow, cultivate and are highly seasonal.
The popular ones cost from $850 - $2500 per pound or more, depending on the variety. There's the White Winter Truffle of Italy that's best eaten fresh and works well when sliced or shaved over risotto, pasta or cheese pizza. Another variety is the Black Perigold of France that's known to have long-lasting aroma and flavor, best for cooked dishes and tastes delicious on eggs and snacks like popcorn.
Do you know that truffles are a good source of high protein too? They're low in fat, are cholesterol free, loaded with antioxidants and contain fiber so if you're thinking of switching to a healthier diet, then eating truffles is a good start.
