If you thought, that a $161,000 truffle was expensive, you need a reality check! At a Chinese enclave charity auction, Casino mogul Stanley Ho successfully bid for a pair of white truffles. A pair of these included a huge truffle found in central Tuscany which weighed as much as two pounds, and the other found in Molise that weighed as much as 14 ounces .
Seems like Ho is on a truffle buying spree he paid $330,000, the same amount for another huge white truffle at the same charity event at least three years ago. The question is, are they really that great to taste?
