Truffles are one of the rarest and most expensive foods in the world
and have been prized by gourmets for centuries.
Like mushrooms, truffles have a system of root-like structures but
unlike mushrooms, truffles never emerge from the surface. Instead
truffles are formed below the soil close to a tree's root systems and
similar to how Porcini mushrooms live off a nearby tree's nutrients,
truffles are the "fruit" of another fungus/tree relationship.
