Black truffles are one of the most highly coveted ingredients in the world. One knobby specimen that David witnessed ended up selling for around 400 euros! No wonder most restaurants use precision scales to measure out the exact amount of shaved truffle going into each dish.
With prices like that, it's also no wonder that many truffle hunters keep their favorite spots for finding the truffles a secret. We're grateful to David and his truffle hunting buddy for letting us tag along and watch the whole process!
