Have you ever had a ‘Truffle’ before? A Truffle is a type of mushroom that grows under tree roots and can be very hard to fInd, which is why they can be quite expensive. Hunting dogs are used to sniff them out and then they are dug up. The area of Croatia🇭🇷 we are staying in has forests with 3 different types of black truffles and white truffles. Their most common truffle is Zigante Tartufi. You can see they are selling truffles and truffle oils above the cheese here, a very common practice in Istria, Croatia. Truffles have a unique taste and smell but I really love them!
