Mark converts $245.74 of loose change into one wine truffle for the purposes of B.Y.O.T. (Bring Your Own Truffle), a convivial and relatively affordable way of sampling this mythical delicacy. With friends at New York's Pizza Gruppo, he also executes a B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Barolo), which is the famous red from the Piedmont area of Italy and a native and classic pairing with the white truffle. Watch as Mark and friends "make it snow" with their "tartufo bianco".
