"Where lightning strikes, a truffle is born.”
Theophrastus (c. 371-287 BCE)
The Ancient Greeks were considered the first westerners to write about truffles and explore their origins and potential. Aristotle, the father of western physical science, was memorized by truffles. He meticulously cataloged their unique growing patterns, ethereal flavors, and other distinct properties.
