In 2005 I had the opportunity to attend the White Truffle Fair in San Miniato, Italy. It was pouring rain, but I didn’t let that stop me from tasting truffle cheese, truffle sausage, truffle wine, truffle oil. Basically, if you can add truffle to the flavor profile, the folks in San Miniato will! I was entranced by the beauty of the town and despite the overcast skies and chilly weather, my day at the truffle festival is one of the best days of my life.
