Truffle is one of the rarest and most expensive food items in the world. White truffles are only available for a few months each year in Autumn and only grow in the forests of northwestern Italy near the border with France. Black truffles grow in several countries across the world, but the most sought-after variety is only found in the mountainous regions of central and northern Italy. They grow underground attached to tree roots and are “unearthed” by specially trained truffle dogs that use their heightened sense of smell to find them.
When: White Truffles at their Finest: November 1–30, 2018
How much: White Truffles at their Finest: 4-course set dinner at MOP $588 per person; Selected set menu wine pairing at MOP $198; Extra freshly shaved white truffles at MOP $128 (about 3 grams)
