Lesson 1352 – A love poem to black truffles

I messed up. Yesterday’s post was supposed to be today’s post. I was supposed to cover recipes on Thursdays. Oh well, I’ll just put this week’s recipe post here.

This is a black truffle.

This is how much they cost (and yes you read that right.)

This is the tool you need to buy if you want to eat truffles. I didn’t bring my reading glasses to the store with me and what I thought was $19.99 turned out to be $39.99 when I got home. The art of eating truffles is very expensive.

This is about $8 worth of truffle.

I scrambled eggs and added just a little bit of shredded Swiss cheese and then topped it all with the truffle slices.

This is heaven.

  1. You are dedicated to your eggs🙂
    Eggs have always been the cheap, good food for when we were poor hahaha. In saying that I do LOVE my eggs, but not enough to put $8 worth of truffle on them haha.

      This is a one time thing. I got the truffle because I’d always wanted to try using one in my cooking. Now that I have, I can cross that off of my bucket list (although, trust me, if I ever see truffle fries on a menu I’m going to be ordering them!)

  2. Eat it quickly, it loses flavor in less than a week. Love truffles. If someone doesn’t have $40 for the correct tool, you can make do with a razor, and a careful hand. As for truffle fries, Moonstones in Chelmsford MA has amazing ones, I dare you not to order them, you can’t help it. The whole place wafts of truffle when an order comes out.
