To me, this looks like any other edible fungus. Though Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s tasty, I donâ€™t see anything special. To Gordon Wu, a Hong Kong property tycoon, this looks like the makings of a $160,406 meal. At a recent auction, Gordon and his wife shelled out enough money to buy a small house for this 3.3 pound Alba white truffle, setting a new Guinness World Record for most valuable truffle bought at an auction in the process. The giant truffle will be made into a five-course banquet by Ritz-Carlton hotel cook Umberto Bombana, and $100 bills will be handed out as napkins. Thankfully, proceeds from the auction go to Motherâ€™s Choice, a Hong Kong charity. Must be nice.
