Truffles, Epicurean Delight

Earthy, nestled amongst tree roots (preferably oak, hazelnut) heady sublime.  Best kept simple, let them shine, scrambled eggs, pasta, bruschetta, fondue.  September thru December, tis the season for white.  Originally hunted with pigs, living up to their name, devouring all, they now use dogs.
Italy awaits, why hesitate.  Villa Fiori, magical memories.
