What can £60k get you these days? From the practical 40% deposit for a £150k mortgaged property, to the luxurious: extensive cosmetic surgery; a rare alligator skin Hermés Birkin bag; 15 Moncler women’s parkas made from jacquard silk and trimmed with fine feathers; a second –hand Porsche 911; or a delivery of white truffles – as received by Aldo Zilli, Executive Consultant Chef for the San Carlo Restaurant Group.

Truffle experts, Truffle Paradise were behind San Carlo’s decadent delivery and confirmed that this was their biggest delivery in the country this year.Aldo Zilli

Rare white truffles don’t come cheap, however, due to the hot summer, in the Italian truffle capital of Alba, the truffles are even harder to find, the result -prices have sky rocketed! The San Carlo Restaurant Group, which has restaurants throughout the UK, are currently serving a selection of truffle dishes* which include: Pumpkin parmesan and white truffle risotto, Fettuccine with butter and white truffle, Cheese ravioli with truffle cream, Chicken stuffed with wild mushrooms and prosciutto topped with white truffle. In addition to eating this exotic fungus you can drink it in the form of truffle beer or grappa.Aldo ZilliIf you do not have a spare £60k to splash out on a rare Birkin, instead, why not treat yourself to a bite of affordable luxury by indulging in a truffle –based meal.
