I bought a truffle today:
When I was in the mushroom section at the Monterey Market in Berkeley, one of the employees came by with a box filled with little plastic containers - it was this morning's truffle shipment! I picked one out and brought it home. We had it shaved over fresh egg fettucine. I tossed the pasta with some plugra butter and fleur de sel before I sprinkled the truffle over the top.
