Where did you find truffles that cheap? More like $2,500-$3,000 a kilo for good fresh ones.

Depends on what sort, the quality and which country you're in. Aussie ones are extortionate at I think, $3k plus, but I read some years ago that a NY restaurant paid just shy of $54k for a 1kg Italian white truffle so that is another extreme. The price I mentioned came from a reliable source and this was the cheapest they found.

But worth every, single, cent.

Absolutly! We went as far as being garlic free when there was none around. Now we're growing our own. My pet peeve is the flood of bleached giant Chinese Garlic on the market. When you compare the two you realise just how awfully acrid the bleached stuff is and how fragrant the organic garlic is.

Thanks for stopping by Lucy.
