Inside the Dark Underbelly of Truffles

January 10, 2012

Who knew the world of truffles was so interesting and crime-filled? 60 Minutes profiled the dark side of one of the world's most luxurious food items. Global warming has brought truffle harvests down. People are resorting to inferior Chinese truffles, stealing them and trading them like drugs. 

So much drama. But seriously, the segment is really interesting and totally worth watching.
