Truffle Hunting in the OC; Oregon Truffles vs. European Truffles

The Green Knight | Jan 26, 2004 12:18 AM

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner, I find myself wondering if fresh white truffles can still be found in the south Orange County area (although I'm willing to travel farther to procure the succulent fungi). Does anyone have any recommendations?

Also, I've found a few online sources for white oregon truffles at very reasonable prices (including eBay). Has anyone tried Oregon truffles vs. the European varieties?

While I'm at it, I might as well ask: any reasonably-priced sources for FRESH Beluga caviar? (By the way, if the grocery store variety in the glass jar comes to mind, then you don't know what fresh Beluga caviar is.)

Thanks,

The Green Knight
