Was at the market on Saturday and met a lovely Italian guy who was selling truffles from Italy. My snout honed in on them fast. Wow they were fabulous.

His family have been truffle hunters in Italy for years and his Dads dog has just had a litter of pups so he is taking a couple of the truffling pups over here to explore the Scottish countryside in the hope there are some of the elusive truffles lurking in the damp dank undergrowth.

Yum.
