On the evils of truffle oil (@EatingOurWords) and corkage (@Eater @TaliaBaiocchi @SottoLA)

My editor at the Houston Press asked me if I’d like to share my thoughts on (and loathing for) truffle oil.

So Tracie P, Georgia P, and I stopped at that huge Autogrill just south of Bologna (you know, the one right before you head up into the Apennines). And I bought this bottle of the petroleum-laced stuff.

Hilarity and farts ensued.

And in the meantime, Talia Baiocchi, my favorite wine writer in America right now, posted interviews with sommeliers from around the U.S. who shared their thoughts on corkage, present company included.

Inflammation ensued.

My girls and I are headed to Melfi today… then it’s on to Lecce on Monday…

Buona domenica yall!
