Truffle Boy: My Unexpected Journey Through the Exotic Food Underground introduces us to the author Ian Purkayastha as he tastes his first truffle while living in the Ozark Mountains, and thus begins an obsession and a journey that lands him in New York City, becoming one of the leading importers of exotic foods for many of the top chefs in America. Along the way, he encounters several memorable characters, including a shady Italian businessman, hot-blooded chefs and mushroom sellers in the American Southwest, all helping him to become the creator and owner of his own company, Regalis Foods.
