Here are some pics and comments concerning our recent visit. You can find a more comprehensive description of a previous visit HERE.
|The same gent has been the arbiter in each of our visits. He takes a small snip of each truffle and checks the aroma. Aroma is pretty much all that counts. It's a pass/fail test with no argument. We call him The Nose.|
|Meticulous records are kept. Even the snippings are carefully bagged.|
|Cathey watches The Nose carefully. She looks for subtle signs indicating the best batch. This year, she picked this gent's truffles as the most fragrant. Can you see Eric Clapton?|
