Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Whether the world's best truffles are found in Piedmont or Périgord inspires impassioned debate, but the effects of dwindling supply and insatiable demand for the elusive, ultimate mushroom are unquestionable: prices through the roof, intrigue and deception, and ever more intensive efforts to cultivate. Here in the most comprehensive practical treatment of the gastronomic treasure to date, the art and science of the high-stakes pursuit come together. The authors describe the commercial species in detail along with their host plants, natural habitats, cultivation, and maintenance, pests and diseases, and harvesting with pigs, dogs, truffle flies, and even the electronic nose.

Biographie de l'auteur

About Ian Hall Ian R. Hall has traveled widely and his knowledge of mushroom cultivation is international in scope. His firm, Truffles & Mushrooms Consulting Ltd., aims to further the cultivation of edible ectomycorrhizal mushrooms. He also directs the activities of Symbiotic Systems N.Z. Ltd, a company that studies the beneficial effects of mycorrhizas in forestry. Hall has published on a variety of topics in addition to edible mushrooms and mycorrhizas, including the pathology of grasses oversown into tussock grasslands and greenhouse design. He completed his PhD at New Zealand's Otago University, where he studied with Geoff Baylis. After his post-doctoral fellowship with Jim Gerdemann at Illinois University, Hall returned to New Zealand to work as an applied mycologist and plant pathologist with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF Technology). earlier book, with Steven Stephenson, Peter Buchanan, Wang Yun, and Anthony Cole, is Edible and Poisonous Mushrooms of the World (Timber Press, 2003). About Gordon Brown Gordon Brown holds undergraduate degrees in liberal arts and commerce from New Zealand's University of Otago, and collaborated with Ian R. Hall on two previous books on the cultivation of truffles in New Zealand. Since 1991 Brown has edited at the Otago Daily Times (Allied Press) and previously was the southern region journalist for the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF Technology). Brown has travelled extensively and witnessed first hand the turmoil in Southeast Asia in the early 1970s. He and his wife, Erina, run a proofreading and editing company, All Write NZ Ltd., which specializes in editing for Southeast Asian clients who speak English as a second language. About Alessandra Zambonelli Alessandra Zambonelli is regarded as a foremost expert in Italy on truffles. A professor and researcher specializing in mycology and applied plant pathology at the University of Bologna, she has published numerous articles on truffles and their cultivation. She is the president of the Italian Mycological Association (Unione Micologica Italiana) which connects mycological groups from all regions of Italy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 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.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Book 24 avril 2017
Par Richard Weber - 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.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Help to make truffle growing decision 2 mars 2017
Par Yifang H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book have more then I could find from online search. Enough for me to decide if I can to go for growing truffles.There are charts and references to refer about truffle identification, host species, competing organisms, host planting site, climate requirement, planting and harvesting, and climate information of the successful truffleries around the world, so that I can have ideas if I could grow truffles in certain area. This is like a review of available information with necessary techniques described briefly. Not a protocol book like Molecular Cloning I edition, but I think people into this area should be able to find more detail protocols in the area of microbiology, molecular biology, plant tissue culture, and horticulture hand books.
