Truffles are costlier than gold and diamond. Yes, it is true.
Want to eat this delicacy: well, the price could be as high as USD 11,000 per kilogram.

Willing to pay?

This ridiculous price has rightly earned truffle the epithet “Black Diamond of Gastronomy”.
A truffle sandwich may cost you as much as 350 dollars. Truffle paste, butter, and oil are other items made out of it.

Truffles are fungi, grow under the soil and are pleasantly flavored. But the cost means a common man can just dream about it.

Italy, France, and Spain are the main markets. In fact, Spain is considered the largest market of Black Truffles (they come as white and black).

Truffles are something that just grow underneath, ie, you do not do farming. They just grow at wild places like mushroom grow, but hunting can be difficult as they are to be searched by digging the soil. Truffle hunters do so with the help of dogs who are good at sniffing them.

Where do we find Truffles in India:

It is known as Guchchhi in India. Truffles grow in mountain states likes Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, and Darjeeling. The farmers may be able to get as much as Indian rupees 4,000 per kilogram.

Imported truffle may be available in some marketplaces, but it remains a prized possession.

Catalonia’s former leader Carles Puigdemont on Tuesday faced fresh threats of extradition from Germany, where a regional prosecutor’s office has requested that he be sent to Spain to face charges of rebellion.

The Spanish judiciary had sent new documents to German authorities regarding the charges being issued against Puigdemont, meaning the Schleswig-Holstein regional prosecution has requested that an extradition request issued by Spain be considered again by courts, sources from the prosecutor’s office told Efe news.

The regional court had previously refused to extradite Puigdemont on rebellion charges and was studying whether to hand him over to Spain to face trial over alleged misuse of public funds.

Puigdemont is wanted in Spain for an investigation into possible rebellion, sedition and misuse of public funds for his alleged role in Catalonia’s separatist referendum and subsequent declaration of independence, deemed unconstitutional by the Spanish judiciary.
