Go behind the scenes of the world's most secretive business. Take a tour of a Provencal truffle plantation, learn how truffles are grown and truffle dogs are trained, and go on a hunt for France's elusive "black gold" with professional hunters who know the tricks of the trade. You will be regaled with stories of successes and sabotage, and learn to tell the difference between a real Provençal tuber melanosporum and its inferior Chinese counterparts. You'll also learn how to properly clean, store and cook with truffles. The Pastras olive and truffle oil.
