Do you remember the first time you ate truffles? I do. It was tagliatelle with fresh shaved black truffles at an upscale Italian restaurant. I only had to smell it and I was completely hooked.
After that I bought truffle oil but of course, this is synthetic and it's not quite the same amazing thing as a fresh truffle. You can buy cheese that has real truffles in it and that's the easiest way to experience the glorious flavor. But I had to find a truffle of my own so I could at least try cooking with it.
A quick Google search helped me find the Mushroom Dealer and no, it's not the fun type of mushrooms. There's a guy who goes around our city to different farmers markets selling them.
He has every variety, from morels to the elusive and expensive truffle. I had to call him to find out where he'd be dealing his mushrooms on the day I wanted to go.
