The Trouble with Truffles

Antique illustration of "Les chercheurs de truffes" by Vayson

I used a conversational approach for this explainer graphic on truffles — the mushroom-like fungus that’s a prized delicacy among food aficionados.

The appeal of truffles isn’t in their taste. It’s in their aroma and the way they impart flavor to other food.

I was able to verify a couple of historical quotes about the attraction of truffles and closed with a great observation from Anthony Bourdain, the late celebrity chef.

This accompanied a story by Marco Della Cava, the same reporter who did the Mavericks wave story.

A link to the graphic is here.
