The truffle oil portraits should be approached as precious objects similar in fashion to the degree that the foodie class covet actual truffles. A rare find, these treasures must be hunted for and sniffed out by experts. Connoisseurs of taste regard the larger white truffles superior in value to those of the black.
To proudly possess an entire nugget of either color, rather than just a portion or its shavings, is a genuine slice of joy.
