I've never had truffles but I bet I wouldn't like them either.

Meg said...

People think truffles are all fabulous and wonderful. Let the pigs have them, I say. They taste like dirt.

I LOVE TRUFFLES!!! The chocolates AND the mushroomy ones. If I ever get a pug I'm naming it truffle. ooh...or a kid. now THAT would be a good hollywood kid name.

Meg said...

Oooh, Truffle would be a great Hollywood name. Get a pug and name it Fig. Name the baby Truffle.

Snails are delicious. Maybe it was so because I was secretly fed that as a kid and only found out its "weird factor" a few years ago. What do you think you won't like about it?

Meg said...

I'm sure snails are tasty, all slathered in butter and garlic. It's a texture thing.
