Last night we were invited to dinner with our neighbour, Marie-Laurence and friend Marie-José, for a truffle evening. She lives in a beautiful renovated farmhouse at the other end of our field of truffle oaks. Dinner began with pumpkin soup and chestnuts, followed by scrambled eggs with truffles, finished off by cheese and clementines. All washed down with chateauneuf-du-pape and chablis. Four black truffles had been placed with the eighteen eggs in the refrigerator to infuse even greater flavour through the eggshells. Next the truffles must be cleaned of any soil residue before grating into the eggs. Great food, good wine and excellent company………………….
