Truffle lovers worldwide put in bids for a 750-gram white truffle from Alba in Italy.


Bids came in from New York and Berlin but it was a $210,000 bid from Hong Kong that won the auction.

The Italian truffle market has been more expensive lately after having a dry summer.

Sunday’s truffle auction raised a total of $535,000.

Back in November of 2006 another white truffle was purchased by a Hong Kong resident for $160,000. I guess they really love truffles in Asia.
