    Thank you very much for including truffles in your survey of Italian foods. I think they really enhance many dishes with an Italian flair. If you or a friend are going to visit the Italian heartland, plan on buying little 80 gram bottles of "tartufo estivo a fette" (sliced truffles) -- they make perfect gifts (they are vacuum packed and sealed, so there should be no problem at Customs). The cost per 80-gram bottle is 12-15 euros, which would be good for about 3-4 dinners for two people. So, naturally, a big raw truffle could set you back, but truffle chips are reasonable and have a great taste. icon_biggrin.gif
    In Italy a classic way to enjoy truffles is with scrambled eggs. I make scrambled egg bruschetta several times a year: toast slices of tuscan bread, rub with the cut side of a garlic clove, dribble with olive oil if you like, mound hot, fluffy scrambled eggs on top, and sprinkle grated truffle overall. Around Florence this is a well-known appetizer.
    Other recipes that I like with truffles include "Sauteed turkey breast fillets with ham, cheese and truffles" by Marcella Hazan, "The Classic Italian Cookbook." I never posted it because I thought the addition of truffles would scare everybody away.
    And there are several really good recipes on the Food.com site which contain truffles. Some that come to mind are:

    "Three Cheese Pizza With Truffle Oil" So delicious and easy!
    "Veal Marengo from the Plaza Hotel"
    "Fonduta (Piedmontese Fondue)"
