Summary, etc.:
Guaranteed to spark America's next great culinary passion, a James Beard Award-winning author explores the secretive and seductive world of truffles, the elusive food that has captured hearts, imaginations and palates worldwide.
Truffles attract dreamers, schemers, and sensualists. People spend years training dogs to find them underground. They plant forests of oaks and wait a decade for truffles to appear. They pay $3,000 a pound to possess them. They turn into quivering puddles in their presence. Jacobsen takes us into a world of secretive hunts, misty woods, black-market deals, obsessive chefs, quixotic scientists, and muddy dogs to show us that there's more to truffles than we ever imagined. -- adapted from jacket.
