Description
 

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.

Great! February 12, 2015
Reviewer: Lacy from Bethany, OK United States  
This was a gift for my husband's birthday. He loves to cook and has always wanted to experiment with a truffle. I was very pleased with the packing and the quick delivery. It came vacuum sealed and very fresh. He chopped it up and cooked it in several dishes. He loved it and said he felt like a king. The flavor was excellent going by our limited experience with truffles.
