|The unassuming black fungus|
This piece of truffle that I bought weigh 15grms and it cost me $30, it's so tiny that you don't really want to use it. Anyway, I tried freezing it in hope that it will taste the same after 2 months of harvesting. After 5.5hours of flying plus a few hours extra for airport check-in and check-out, the first thing I did when I got home was to check it out. To my horror, it was completely thawed, wet and soft, I wasn't sure if it's ok but let's just hope. (Notice the white line through the truffle are not there anymore, now it looks like a piece of black shit!)

However, before jumping into cooking up a storm, I tried shaving tiny bits onto my hard-boiled egg for the moment and let my parents to try. Their expression was funny though, because they can't seems to taste the exquisite flavour!
