Transylvania is becoming more and more renowned for its huge amounts and excellent quality of truffles!
Apart from being terribly elusive and mysterious, truffles actually taste really good and are rightfully an important ingredient in the classic cuisine of most western advanced culinary cultures!
Hunting them in the woods is a different kind of scenario; it’s not like a wine tour or a cheese tour, where you sit comfortably tasting and assessing what’s given to you. You get your shoes dirty as you follow a dog and his master as they weave their way through the woods at an early hour in the morning. But the trophy? The exhilarating experience of finding the truffles!
