To be honest I don’t think I have eaten truffles or used truffle oil, but with the news this week that a huge €140,000 white truffle was found in Italy, it has brought to the fore the question, are truffles worth the money?
The Guardian’s Jay Rayner asks this question:
So the question is, without the flavour burst of truffle oil do truffles really taste of anything? Or, to be more exact, do they taste of enough given their price?
A good article to read with some interesting responses. Personally I would quite like to try something made with truffles, black or white.
