Les Truffieres Ferme Auberge

Brian, Cheri and Doug @ La Trufferies

Les Truffieres near the beautiful village of Tremolat is a very nice and creative Ferme Auberge at the end of a winding narrow country lane that is definitely not designed for 2 lane traffic. Starting with soup ( chilled Gazpacho today ) then a big slice of home made Foie Gras mi-cuit with Monbazillac moelleux wine followed by a farm grown salad, then BBQ grilled slices of marinated duck breast with pan fried potatoes and fennel, then cheese, then dessert  ( today sticky chocolate pudding ) and served with a carafe of wine and all for  a very reasonable set price of 29€ head… Great value !  It sounds like enough food for an army, but the portions are nicely sized and the delivery well paced, we have always enjoyed a very good meal served with charm.

Home grown salad hhmmmmm

Usually you would sit in the ' dining ' room ' which is more like sitting in someones drawing room with the great atmosphere and decorations in the room. Yesterday we went with Doug and Lindy Hawkins, our dear friends from Auckland and had a first time experience of eating outside. It's been incredibly humid over the past few days so sitting outside in a cool breeze and a full moon was just the ticket.  Doug and Lindy leave today to return to NZ  (with it's current sleet and snow) after having enjoyed 4.5 months of Italy, staying in B+B's and holiday homes to enjoy the ” dolce vita ” and brush up on their Italian.
