Why are truffles so valuable?
Truffles are so valuable because the process in order to obtain these mushrooms is very challenging. Truffles exist underground, and require trained pigs, whose noses are just sensitive enough to sniff out the truffle they are told to find, be it black or white truffles. The truffle season is also very short, from October to November each year! They are also valuable and sought after because they add an unusual, meaty yet sweet, taste and texture to a variety of dishes.
