ancient grain spaghetti...

"Ancient grains in their “whole grain” form provide fibre, vitamins and minerals, and healthy fats. Research shows that people who eat more whole grains may have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and some cancers.
Ancient grains are grains that have been planted and harvested for thousands of years. Some ancient grains are not grains, but actually grasses or seeds. Some common ancient grains include: Amaranth, Barley, Buckwheat, Kamut, Millet, Quinoa, Spelt, Teff, etc." -- unlock food

black garlic and white truffle...

"Black garlic is a type of aged garlic that is colored deep brown. ... It is made by heating whole bulbs of garlic (Allium sativum) over the course of several weeks, a process that results in black cloves. The taste is sweet and syrupy with hints of balsamic vinegar or tamarind." -- Wikipedia
Truffles are tubers that grow a few inches underground. ... While all truffles are deeply valued, the white truffle from Alba (a particular species called tuber magnatum) is the most desired for its unforgettable flavor. They have a knobby shape, firm flesh, and pale golden color. The White Truffle Balsamic Vinegar has a dark, clear color developed by extended cask aging. The infusion of white truffles elevates this traditional balsamic vinegar. -- Eataly
