Time for a few confessions. A lovely person called Mr Truffle recently ran a creative writing competition; create a piece of writing about ‘how to buy truffles’. I entered with a piece heavy on double entendre and won! You can read my entry on Mr Truffle’s pages here, sadly I posted it before I finished editing so there are a few glitches in the last couple of paragraphs - but hey I won and am now the proud owner of 20g of truffles. But what to do with them…. watch this space.
Second confession – my interest in this topic is not a new one. Ever since I read, Taming the Truffle - the history, lore, and science of the Ultimate Mushroom by Ian R Hall et al, I have wanted to plant my own truffiere; who knows, one day, maybe.
