Big truffle news from Les Pastras!

David Pakman 15

This may just be the most exciting thing that has ever happened to us!

(No, being in Truffle News is the most exciting thing!)


David Pakman 41Les Pastras truffle hunts are in the news, featured in the travel section of the Chicago Tribune! The story is online now, in print on May 29. CLICK HERE to read all about it!
David Pakman 22Here’s just a taste:

“A trip to Provence isn’t complete without at least one decadent meal featuring truffles. The precious fungus, also known as black gold, can sell for hundreds of dollars a pound, and its distinctive earthy flavor can be found on seasonal menus and in everything from salt to cheese.

David Pakman 18But where do truffles come from exactly?

David Pakman 19Former Chicagoans Johann and Lisa Pepin are willing to show you if you visit their farm in the Luberon region of southern France. There, the Franco-American couple offer English-speaking visitors a unique truffle-hunting experience.”
