The Truffle Book is the perfect introduction to the pleasurable and mysterious world of truffles. Gareth Renowden explores the truffle forests of France and the truffle markets of Italy, discovers the new truffles of the American Northwest and the new plantations of Australia and New Zealand, and dispels a few myths along the way.
