The Way of the Truffle, Part Two

This morning, as all the Friends of the Blog recall, we had scrambled eggs with black truffles, the most expensive scrambled eggs I have ever eaten. At this point, a little more than half of the truffle remained.

Tonight we had risotto with black truffle, which consumed maybe a quarter of the original truffle.

I am pleased to announce that the risotto was: the most expensive risotto I have ever eaten.

We still have a little more than a third of the truffle left, so at least one more break-the-bank meal is forthcoming.

I apologize for not taking any photographs. You could see the flecks of truffle in the risotto, as if were black gold dust.
