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.
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!"

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 wwww.truffes.com , thank you so much.
Count on it, I'll be back soon!
