Did you know?
Good timing is crucial for harvesting truffles: a truffle harvested too soon, will have little or no aroma and taste; a truffle harvested too late, will be spongy and have an unpleasant smell, not good for consumption. The harvest for the Périgord black starts in late November, lasting until February and often March.
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.
