This classic combination is amazing, and amazingly expensive! I happened upon an opportunity to buy some white truffles in season from Alma Gourmet at a time when I had some extra cash to blow on an extravagance. I had read about and heard about white truffles, but I had never had the opportunity to try them myself, so I grabbed the opportunity, even though it was $295 for a one-ounce truffle. At least the shipping was free!
We tried them three ways: shaved over scrambled eggs, shaved and mixed into the eggs to absorb the flavor, and shaved over pasta with butter and cheese, the way Richmond had enjoyed it at a memorable culinary experience in Venice. This was my favorite way to enjoy them.
