The Perennial Plate: The Truffle Hunters

  • In pursuit of one of the great culinary treasures of the world

  • Tags:

    In another instalment of The Perennial Plate made possible by Intrepid Travel, the globe-trotting foodies find themselves in Marche, Italy, joining the locals in the hunt for one of the world's greatest culinary treasures: Truffles. The chase for the earthy delight involves two people (the hunter and the dealer) and a dog. The dog plays a starring role in this clip, as they hunt for the Biancetto variety in the mountainous zone that is widely regarded as Italy's truffle center:

    Italian truffle hunters dig up roughly 100 metric tons of truffles a year. With the help of a seasoned team of locals, we were lucky enough to find two, and eat many, many more.

    Lucky, indeed. Watch above.
