It only lasts until 1PM PST today, but Sabatino Tartufi (http://www.sabatinostore.com/truffles/fresh-frozen) is having 50% off on white truffles. It will still be expensive and shipping costs suck, but it does a bit of the bite out.

The code is: FIFTYOFF.

Edit: I actually tried the code for black truffles too and it worked, even though the site says it is for white truffles. 2 oz. of black truffles with truffle shaver costs about $50. Shipping (for example to MN) costs $32 for 2nd day.

Is two day shipping acceptable? How soon would they have to be used?

I'm very interested, never had truffles before. Can someone expand and give me their take?

Is it worth the splurge? Preferences? How long do they last? Any other tips?

I can not tell you firsthand how long they last as I have only used them before and never OWNED them per se...Let's say they make everything taste that much better and in my opinion are really worth it...In my experience the black is a lot more truffley/mushroomy however you want to say it. I prefer white rather than black but that is just my personal preference...

Awesome -- thanks. Going to try a black vs white comparo. We've wanted to do this for a long time.

What are people's favorite dishes for both white and black?

I see they also have some black burgundy available.

A little more info--I just called with some questions. For the sale, they would ship today, and recommend overnight. The woman I talked to said they should not be kept in the shipping packaging, but that they should last for close to a week.

Paul Bocuse's truffle soup is to die for. Here is the recipe:

Yay! A big white ball of goodness headed my way. Some nice risotto with shaved truffle on it--perfect for the cool November evenings

Hmmm, I like the chicken liver pate idea for my wife. Risotto is definitely on the list for me. Eggs and pasta as well.

I only ordered one ounce of white, but I regretted not ordering a couple ounces of black too. I read that one thing to do is shave the black and tuck it under chicken skin while roasting.

I'm just going to do a risotto and any remnants will be used in eggs the next morning. I called them and even though I only paid for 2 day shipping, they are overnighting it, so I will get it Saturday.

Sadly mine will sit at a USPS facility and be delivered Monday. I hope that does not mess them up too much. Only went for 1/2 oz of white though, and am trying 2 oz of black.

I'm too late for the sale, but I'd be curious to know how they are. I've tried white truffles from a couple of different US purveyors before, and felt that they never held a candle to the ones I had in Italy.

I like them over simple fresh tagliatelle or risotto.
