When Tom first put the truffle in my hand I knew my life would be altered. Yes I had been mushroom hunting for years but truffles were different, hidden and surrounded by mysterious myths and secrets. To celebrate the pea size find we all feasted on lobster soup and prawns straight from the sea where I live . It’s prawn season and this always reminds me of that day . A couple of days ago while walking home Minnie dug a large and extraordinary truffle. I could smell it before it came out of the ground. Today I wandered down to the sea to meet Will who had caught me some prawns. I took them home,boiled them up and ate them with toast and truffle butter made with the extraordinary one. OMG. The flavour. The sea, the earth . I took photos but just had to eat in a kind of frenzy. This is what happens when you find the perfect umami match..
