Moto Chef Wants To Grow $1,000 Truffles In-House
French Perigord Truffle.
This is kind of sweet and decadent, and if Moto can pull this off, it will take the West Loop restaurant to a different level.
From chef/owner Homaro Cantu:
"Today's crazy idea of the day! Let's start growing our own in house French Perigord Truffles. Why not? They cost $1,000 per pound and we have an indoor farm that can create the perfect growing conditions. ... My truffles will taste good all year round. ... Watch the beginning of this video to see how we will do it."
