LAS VEGAS ( MainStreet) -- Would you pay thousands of dollars for a pound of mushrooms? Maybe not, but white truffles, those very 'shrooms that cost $2,000 a pound or more, have chefs across the country salivating.TravelsinTaste spoke to many chefs about their use of the diamond of the culinary world, and Shaun Hergatt of SHO Shaun Hergatt in New York hit the nail right on the head when he told us: "White truffle is like gold out of the ground. They are a true pleasure to eat, from aroma to taste. They're such a unique experience. We all lust for that two months when they blossom."
