Obama’s re-election gift: A white truffle

A small Italian village renowned for its white truffles will give US President Barack Obama a record specimen weighing in at more than a kilo as a reelection present. “A 1.012-kg truffle from Acqualagna will be gifted to the President of the United States Barack Obama to celebrate his reelection,” the local authorities said in a statement. The truffle, a rare subterranean mushroom prized in haute cuisine, is to be delivered to the United States on November 18 and Acqualagna officials said they hoped Obama would show up in person to pick up his gift. “The first American president to receive an Acqualagna truffle was Harry Truman in 1956. The latest dignitary to have received it was Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” the town’s mayor, Andrea Pierotti, said.
