How much do you know about truffles? I admit I'm pretty clueless, but I'd love to learn and this article on Portfolio.com seems like a good place to start. I've always known that truffles were in the 'shroom family (fungi) and that they grew underground, but that's been about it. Now I know how to shop for truffles, which ones to cook and which ones not to, which wines go best with which kinds, and even how to best store them.
Of course becoming a true connoisseur is going to take a lot more than one "how to" article, but we've all got to start somewhere!
