Description

They've done the hard part: collected the truffles and pressed the olives. When you head to this southeastern French town, you'll be hard pressed not to be impressed by the smooth finish on the golden liquid and the rich truffles scoured by teams of well-trained pigs and dogs. The New Oil and Truffles fair is a seasonal event that's difficult to match. Further, Aix-en-Provence is a must-see on any gourmand's list of places not to miss in life. It's hard not to be enticed with sampling the first press of the year's virgin oil, then inhale and nibble on the rich, complex flavors of the chanterelle and morrel mushrooms. Bring plenty of cash, however, a small sack of the truffles might go for an extraordinary amount. Then again, the feeling you get trying the sweet fungi just might entice a little cash out of your pocketbook so you can take carry that rich, mouthwatering taste all the way home.
