    Just for comparison, here's a shot of the scrambled eggs from The Mansion:

    Crème Fraîche. Which you also stir in at the last moment to stop the cooking process.

    Well, I suppose it doesn't stop it completely, but you are cooking the eggs at a very low heat to begin with. So once you take the bowl out of the water, a bit of cold cream cream will at least temper the eggs so they don't overcook off the heat. At least that's what I think.

    I've only ever had black truffles. I hope to try some white ones this Fall.

    White are stupendously expensive. If I see you confit them or some other shit I am going to come through the Internets and smack you. Raw, please.

    last year, Eataly had white truffles on sale for $5 a gram, which is a fantastic price. I think it was only for a day though. According to google, the average truffle is 30-60 grams.

    We bought a small whole one for a close friend last year. He was really blown away. They make great gifts in those little jars with the rice.

    A gum ball sized white Alba truffle will easily cost $200.
