From a small town in Italy called Alba, an extravagant mushroom is harvested only during the fall season, specifically between November and December, and it is known as a true gastronomic gem.
The white truffle is characterized by its unique and delicate flavor, its fine and velvety skin, its pale ocher color, its reddish-brown inside, and its high price due to its scarcity in the market, making it the most expensive white gold.
Its high prices are derived from the complexity of its cultivation. To sprout and grow, the white truffle needs special terrain with equally unique climatic conditions: soil should be soft and wet for a better part of the year and it must be rich in calcium, also a good circulation of air is desirable.
The white truffle is usually compared to diamonds and occasionally is worth more than them. The record was set in 2010 when a buyer from Hong Kong paid over €90,000 for two extraordinary 950-gram pieces at the auction held at the International Alba White Truffle Fair.
