A note about serious food allergies

These aren't the kind of truffles covered in chocolate and filled with cream. These truffles grow wild in the forest, are found by pigs, and are known for their culinary delicacy. Just a touch of the oil on the pasta, and you'll be awash in the unique, rich flavor.
