Editorial Reviews


At $2,000 a pound and up, you may not be able to give your truffle-loving friends any precious fungus, but you can make them experts on the topic by giving them this book. Learn what only those in the truffle trade know: the author, who is fluent in French, went to Périgord to hang out with the professionals. She even hunted her own truffles. -- The Nibble
