2- White Truffles
Truffles, in general, are well-known for being a luxury food item. However, what you may not know is that there are actually multiple varieties of truffles out there. One of the most expensive is the white truffle. The black truffle can be found in the UK, the US, and France.
However, the white truffle can only be found in certain areas of Italy. Typically, they will be found in areas of woodland. The ancient Greeks believed that white truffles came about when lightning hit wet soil.
The average price for white truffles is between $1000 and $2000 per pound. As you can imagine, a meal containing white truffles is definitely
going to set you back a bit.
Considering there are very little supply and demand for white truffles due to the expense involved, there isn’t really a set price for them, but you can expect to pay a lot of money, that’s for sure.
