MY WIFE LOVES WHITE TRUF­FLES. And the few times we’ve tasted them—dur­ing their brief ap­pear­ance in late fall and early win­ter—they’ve been the high­light of the meal. Last Christ­mas, weigh­ing the cost of ordering a truf­fle sup­ple­men­tal at a res­tau­rant, we de­cided to splurge in­stead on ordering a cou­ple of ounces of Alba truf­fles from a pre­mium sup­plier and tried shav­ing truf­fles at home. Here’s how to get the most de­li­cious re­turn on your truf­fle in­vest­ment. —MARY-FRANCES HECK

Do the Truf­fle Math A white Alba truf­fle sup­ple­men­tal at a res­tau­rant may run any­where from $100 to $200 per per­son. By ordering di­rectly from a sup­plier, the same ex­trav­a­gant ex­pe­ri­ence can be had for around $125 per ounce, or $30 per serv­ing. (Pric­ing varies from sea­son to sea­son.)
