Ok, I'll admit I had never heard of these.  Sounds interesting enough to check my local mid-east grocers just in case (closest I can get to Libyan 'round here).

Thanks sub!

I think most people know that there are both black truffles and white truffles, but what really made me twitch...

For hours he wanders across the desert by foot or in his pickup truck, covering dozens of kilometres (miles) and stopping at several spots to scratch the sand with his hands or a cane in search of white truffles.

Are they miles though?  Did you really need to parenthesize anything there?  This isn't like saying aubergine (eggplant).

Most foodies know about white truffles, and the difference between them and black truffles.

They just probably didn't realize they grew on the south shore of the Med too, instead of just the north.

Standard style for a lot of publications to do equivalent English/Metric units.  Seems weird when they are on the same order of magnitude.  More obvious when it's "15 to 20 meters (50 to 60 feet)"

while the desert has become a hornet's nest for jihadists and criminal gangs.


I definitely do NOT want to go camping with him.  But I will buy his lovely lovely white truffles for $33 / kilo!!!!

That made we wince as well.  A Km being about 0.6 mile is not a 1:1 thing in my eyes.

Well, in all fairness, he is quite a ways from the waters of Lake Minnetonka.
