Can truffles be found, in the U.S.A? Or North America, for that matter? Just curious about it.
And I could
just look it up, but I much prefer the more interesting answers from TPR members.
You got me curious, too! There are quite a few states surprisingly......including Tennessee, Ca, N.C., Oregon... & B.C! I came across a very interesting article in a past Wall Street Journal issue: https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-elusive-american-black-truffle-1518264060
. For a little adventure, you can even join a truffle hunt in some areas! The Truffle Dog Company
sponsors guided truffle hunting experiences in truffle season. They take you to an actual truffle patch where guides and their dogs will show you how it's done!
(Unfortunately no truffles in NYC, so my dog will just have to enjoy sharing my store-bought truffle cheese with me. No hunting classes, dang!
