$35,000 Truffle

Los Angeles restaurateur Joe Pytka went to a charity auction in Italy and doled out $35,000. His purchase: a huge white truffle. It's believed to be the largest sum ever paid for such a fungus. Robert Siegel interviews chef Alain Giraud, who works at Pytka's West Hollywood restaurant, Bastide, about what he'll do with the truffle.
