Born Of Fire

From the dawn of civilization, truffles have been a prized ingredient.


Thousands of years ago Plutarch and Juvenal argued that truffles were created by flashes of lightning.

Of course, this isn’t true, but all the way up
until the 18th century, the origins of this prized food were a mystery.


Because they grow underground, truffles are hunted by pigs and dogs whose sense of smell helps them to find the precious fungus.

Now most varieties can be cultivated, but their delicious taste, relative rarity and short shelf life make them a luxury even today.
