Descriptions du produit

Taming the Truffle Whether the world's best truffles are found in Piedmont or Perigord, the effects of dwindling supply and insatiable demand for the elusive mushroom are unquestionable. This work describes the commercial species along with their host plants, habitats, cultivation, and maintenance, diseases, and harvesting with pigs, dogs, and truffle flies. Full description

If you are considering growing truffles, you need this book 3 octobre 2010
Par J Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am an extension specialist who works with new crops. Truffles are one of the "hot new crops" that I answer questions about every week. I also maintain a small, young truffle orchard; it is not yet producing. There aren't many "truffle experts" in the U.S. right now. If you want to grow truffles, most of the information you get will be from the people who want to sell you the inoculated seedlings. The information from the agricultural extension system is still quite limited. So this is the book that I recommend to anyone who is considering growing truffles. Establishing a truffle orchard is expensive; this book is a small price to pay for valuable information on truffle biology, history, the industry, and cultivation around the world.

Not Much on North America Truffle Cultivation 9 avril 2008
Par H. B. Estabrooks Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is beautifully presented through excellent printing, and wonderful photographs. It is superbly researched in dealing with the science of truffles and their distribution. If you want to know about truffles, in principle, this is the book to have.

If you're thinking about undertaking truffle culture in North America, this book will not be much help. It has much to say about how people have been successful in Europe and New Zealand but essentially nothing about the U.S. This is unfortunate as there are a number of successful truffieres in Oregon, North Carolina and Tennessee. It would have been good to talk about their efforts/methods. The book would have been more helpful if the authors had captured some of the experience and wisdom embodied in Dr. Charles Lefevre of New World Truffieres. He's the preeminent North American truffle expert.

ALMOST enough information to enable one to plant a truffiere 11 avril 2014
Par Bernard Brandt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a superlative book: well written, nicely printed and bound, and with a reasonable price for the value.

More particularly, it is THE definitive work, so far, as regards the black Perigord truffle (or tuber melanosporum) and the white Italian truffle (or tuber magnatum), not to mention the many world regional variants such as African desert truffles or Oregon native truffles. As the black truffle currently runs about $1,000.00 per pound, and the Italian white runs about $3,000.00 per pound, this book would obviously be of interest to anyone wanting a legal high cash crop.

"Taming the Truffle" is, in addition, filled with fascinating information, not limited to such tidbits as the name of the French chef who first paired the Perigord truffle with foie gras, or the unsettling fact that in the 1970s, French scientists did such an inadequate job of isolating t. melanosporum spores that they mistakenly inoculated thousands of hectares of tree seedlings with the less valuable and more virulent t. brumale spore system, thus ruining France's attempts at restoring her indigenous truffieres.

Most valuable, at least for the prospective grower, is that this book gives the clearest information that I have seen as to the terroir and growing conditions of t. melanosporum and t. magnatum, together with an exhaustive bibliography of just about everything written (popular or scientific) on the subject of truffles.

This is not to say, however, that with this book, thousands of dollars worth of inoculated seedlings, and a few tons of calcium carbonate strewn on the ground, one will start digging up truffles in five to ten years. As the book points out in elaborate detail, the planting and care of a truffiere (or truffle farm) is a very knowledge intensive process, requiring an extensive practical experience in, among many other things, soil science, microbiology, mycology, arboriculture, agricultural management, plant pathology, and marketing.

But this book does a better job than anyone else I've seen of indicating the problems involved and the knowledge and skill set necessary to start a working truffiere.

While some reviewers have taken exception to the fact that the book does little to speak of U.S. truffieres, I look upon this as a feature, not a bug. The book's emphasis has been on the largely successful work of introducing truffle producing trees to Australia, Tasmania, and New Zealand. One could do far worse than the authors of "Taming the Truffle" have done. I do not see how they could have done any better than they have.

Beautiful book - enjoyable read 29 juillet 2012
Par Anna Pearson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
An odd sort of crossover between a book that you could almost just leave on your coffee table, and a genuinely valuable information source. Covers an excellent variety of subject matter and definitely a worthwhile read if you're interested in starting a truffle farm - will let you know what you need to test, and give you some insight into judging quality of product if you haven't had the fortune of growing up in Europe surrounded by fresh Truffles!! :)

Taming the Truffle 26 février 2008
Par Thomas S. Mackie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a self described Truffle afficianado, I would say this is the best book that I have seen on truffles. I have not finished reading the entire book, but can say that it is the most comprehensive and informative book on truffles that I have found. It does not rate one truffle over the next like some books do. I highly recomend this book.
