Spring Truffle Hunting with The Perennial Plate


 Ciao tutti! This week's podcast Jason & I chat about having our first guests arrive for the season, the amazing filmmakers from The Perennial Plate. We served as 'fixers' hooking them up with local artisans and taking them (interpreting/translating along the way) truffle hunting & pasta making with neighbors while they were filming one of their food-travel documentaries. We are BIG fans of their work so we were thrilled to help (seriously check out their work on youtube or vimeo & you will be inspired - not to mention they just were nominated for a James Beard Award!) The weather held out and we were able to spend a few hours in the spring sun above Apecchio searching for Bianchetto truffles with Alessandro Rossi & his uncle Piero (plus of course the dog!), finishing with a delicous lunch - a truffle filled fritatta & home-brewed beer. (Alessandro gave us a freakn' ton of truffles to take home that day too so dinner was truffle rich as well!) 

Back to the podcast, we also answer your questions, including a rewind-clip from a past episode about Gaggi. Jason gives out a great spring recipe - peas & pancetta!  Plus a very special offer just for our podcast listeners.....
Keep the questions coming & thanks for listening (especially as we work out the audio kinks)
