#TruffleTuesday is just as fun as #TacoTuesday. Especially at @lapecorabianca where their handmade pasta makes me feel things.
STORYTIME: the other day, someone asked me what truffles were and I said they’re “a certain fungi” with a distinct aroma and earthy taste. This didn’t help anyone, so I googled it and decided 90% of it was barely English so I shared a fun fact instead.
Did you know that the word truffle comes from the Latin term “tuber”? Which means “swelling” or “lump”? Over time it developed into “tufer” and eventually became “truffle”, amongst many other spellings, depending on the region you’re in.
Idk I just thought this was interesting because NOW it kinda sounds like we’re eating tumors of a fungus plant. Delicious tumors, but still. Happy Tuesday 😝🐷 #themoreyouknow🌈 #lapecorabianca #skinnypignyc #truffles
