Black Diamond

This was supposed to be a bad year for the truffle season in France. Mr Truffle man, a 30 minute drive north of our house, said that he has seen a 80% decline in truffles on his property within the past 30 years.
Nevertheless Mr Truffle man made us a surprise visit last week with two huge truffles found by his dog, Pomme. Pomme is 14 years young, practically deaf and blind but she still has the 'nose'.
Our neighbor recalls her grandmother saying,' there is nothing to eat in the house, go outside and find some truffles'
