La Fête de la Truffe 2011
Feast your eyes. This weekend L’académie culinaire hosts the annual Fête de la Truffe in Sarlat, capital of the Perigord Noir.
The Perigord is famed for its truffles. Commonly refered to as the black 'diamond', this is a two day truffe extravaganza.
High gastronomy indeed, nothing seems to arouse a foodies passion quite like the tuber melanosporum.
With prices between seven and nine hundred euros a kilo, the one pictured above is yours for a mere one hundred and thirty five euros.
You can join the queue for truffled scrambled eggs. Everybody gets some, this is truffles for the people, right on.
National TV are there, interviewing talented chefs from some of the best kitchens in the area.
Decisions, decisions. You choose.
Brunch tomorrow, omelette aux truffe.
