My first truffle

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.

Hi there!
We say in Spanish "you gain a man's love by filling is stomach"!
He must be really happy about you cooking so well.
I would recommend you to try (if you can get it) the white truffle (typical from the North of Istria in Croatia and in Italy).
In Catalonia we get incredible black truffles, but I prefer the white one as tortelloni filling.

Take care and eat fantastically during Xmas!!!

Just curious, what did 1 truffle cost?
