Eros and Truffles, the book that reveals the innermost mysteries of a magical food that, according to legend, comes from a loving encounter: a divine lightning penetrated into the bowels of Mother Earth.
He who dominates smells dominates the hearts of men. This statement, taken from a famous novel, effectively explains where the power of Truffles comes from: from perfume, an invisible substance yet capable of attracting or repelling, of awakening memories, arousing emotions and desires, including sexual ones.
Of the magic of perfumes, Truffles are the most vivid testimony. No other food possesses the charm and power of suggestion of these underground mushrooms which, marrying the sense of smell to taste, reinforce the ritual of shared food and create expectations, suggest complicity, fuel seductions.
Truffles excite the mind even before sitting down at the table, by virtue of a mysterious aura that has been consolidated over the centuries.
