Truffle Blogging

I said I'd be blogging about the truffles we bought. Below is the truffle risotto that She Who Must Be Obeyed prduced.

These were the first truffles I'd ever seen up close and they are definitely weird things. Unlike your average fungus they are hard and they don't look like anything edible at all. On the other hand the smell is amazing. And it gets better as you cook them.

Having said that I was only medium impressed with the end result. The Trompettes de Mort risotto SWMBO cooked a coiple of months ago was, in my opinion, very much superior in terms of taste...

I despise l'Escroc and Vile Pin
