Truffles are rare with white ones only being available a couple of months of the year, almost exclusively from one part of Italy, where they must be foraged by special pigs!!! Reports indicate there are fewer of them, and of lesser quality, every year, due to climate changes. As one of the most expensive single food item in the world, white truffles are a luxury. As part of a foraging group here in the SF Bay Area, what I'd give to have white truffles! I guess I'll just have to settle for chanterelles and other less expensive mushroom delicacies.
