The Food Expert:

My story is the story of a passion handed down from my grandfather. When I was a child, I used to go with him to find this strange mushroom, which did not yet have the celebrity it has today. I didn’t really know what Alba truffle was, what the smell meant, but I loved going out with my grandfather and his dog and breathing in the scent of the woods.
I liked it so much that I wanted to take up the tradition of white Alba truffle hunting, a centuries-old tradition in the Langa.
