Editorial Reviews

Review

The Romans believed [truffles] were created where lightning struck the earth. Churchill and Napoleon, among many others, were devotees. Other fans, or keen cooks, will want this large-format, lavishly illustrated book, which offers the last word on all things truffle; from the mysteries of the tubers' existence and where and how to buy them, to the many varieties available and the fun to be had hunting for them in France, Italy and elsewhere. The last third of the book is devoted to recipes. (Clover Stroud Telegraph 2009-11-23)

About the Author

Since 2000 Annemie Dedulle has run a business harvesting and selling truffles to top restaurants in Belgium, the Netherlands and France.

Toni de Coninck is head editor of UIT-magazine, a Dutch lifestyle publication, and the author of several gastronomy books.

Format: Hardcover
If you are like me; a sucker for juicy, photographically driven, foodie books, I've got good and bad news for you.

It's bad news if your bank balance is running low but good news if you have a few bucks to spend as Truffles (Firefly Books) is your kind of book; if you see it, you will want it.

Truffles 176 pages decode the mysteries of the uber tuber, featuring an extensive definition, offering the details on its many varietals, showcasing the way different countries hunt for the gems, pairing wine and sharing the sophisticated recipes of several Three-Star Michelin chefs...
All of this is detailed with photography so delightful, you'll be torn between keeping this book in the kitchen or on the coffee table.
At $34.96 Truffles Earth's Black Diamonds is a bit on the spendy side, but, if you need your juicy cookbook fix, you're in for a treat.
