1. When storing fresh truffles, store them in a closed container with one or two raw eggs. The porousness of the shells will absorb any moisture and keep the truffles from going bad. The eggs that are stored with the truffles will also absorb the truffle scent, and are quite delicious sunny side up. Just a perfect hint of truffle in the egg.

It definitely helped that 10 of my coworkers were with me. I really love those people; I feel like no matter how much we bicker or disagree at work, they got my back, ya know?
