Cycle de vie d’une truffe

Did you know?
Truffles reproduce through their spores, contained in a little sack known as the ascus. The spores of the black truffle are spiny. A sure way to identify a true truffle from a fake one is by looking at the spores through a microscope.

I left France 15 years ago for the Silicon Valley.Let me state it clearly, it's not for culinary reasons that I moved ... Food is so important to us French people! I miss so much the taste of those black truffles we grow at home! Hmmmmmm, that truffle omelette with a good bottle of Château Gruaud-Larose (it's a Bordeaux "Grand Cru"). Felt like home!!! Thank you , thank you so much. Count on it, I'll be back soon!

invited to one of those classy Saturday night Beacon Hill's dinners; everyone would come with their usual flowers. We brought a 0.45 Oz jar of winter black truffles. Next day hostess texts me: "Thank you for the truffles, the most elegant dinner present I've ever been offered!" Ben L., Weston, MA 02493
