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.

Origin: Italy
Serving size: about 1oz. for 2 people
Uses: White truffles are generally served raw, and shaved over steaming buttered pasta or salads. White or black paper-thin truffle slices may be inserted into meats, under the skins of roasted fowl, in foie gras preparations, in pâtés, or in stuffings.

BIG and fresh white truffles September 30, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from carmel, CA United States  
I ordered 3oz of white truffles from O&O and they gave me the option to get one big piece or two smaller ones.
The smell and the flavor are like those that I used to find in Italy.
