In season: truffles

7 images

Britain’s damp climate is not always loved, but for truffle growers and hunters it is a boon as it allows the Tuber aestivuma, or Burgundy truffle, to flourish. This subterranean offering has been known to man as a foodstuff since pre-Classical times, although only during the last century has it been understood that truffles are a form of fungus.
