Bonne Année - with Truffles!


It's the annual Fête de la Truffe in Sarlat this coming weekend. Karen and I will have to miss it this year, we're away visiting friends and family but there'll be other years. The weekly Saturday market will still continue to be perfumed with the scent of the 'Black Diamond' through 'til February - so there'll still be 'truffly' opportunities!


There's a cookery 'theatre', truffle hunting demonstrations and loads of fabulous atmosphere.


These are some photos from last year.

    1. Happy New Year Anna. I'll invest in a small truffle before the season ends, put slivers under the skin of a good chicken and poach it.

    1. Happy New Year. Truffle oil is always a good way to add a 'truffly' hit.

      Just got back from a snowy UK. Karen's sister flew back to Brisbane from Heathrow on Saturday without a delay - amazing.

      BRRRRRRRR.
