It's winter in Europe. So we have winter truffles in our plates here.

spicy seafood soup
tortino - flourless chocolate cake with a coulis of expresso and vanilla ice cream
There are not so many kinds of truffles that are diamonds in the kitchen but there is a bunch of similarities out there. My reference goes here. Besides those exquisite five, other so-called truffles may resemble in shape but much inferior aroma-wise.
I usually have my truffle dishes by Chef Maurizio Menconi of La Scala, The Sukhothai Hotel in Bangkok, who boasts high standard of creation and a passion for food

This photo reminded me of white truffle desserts that he made not so long ago. Delicious!!!!
