Truffles are the world’s most mysterious and expensive food, but they are also an essential part of the forest ecosystem, linking trees and animals in a web of relationship that extends from the forest floor to the human communities around the world that depend on truffles for their livelihoods and celebrate them in their culinary traditions. Join award-winning writer Rowan Jacobsen on this deep dive into the world of truffles, from Italy and Istria to the wilds of the Northeast.

Vermont’s Rowan Jacobsen is the author of eight books on science, nature, and gastronomy. He writes often for Scientific American, Smithsonian, Eating Well, Outside, Yankee, and many other magazines. His newest book is TRUFFLE HOUND: On the Trail of the World’s Most Seductive Scent, with Dreamers, Schemers, and Some Extraordinary Dogs.
