Does anyone know where to source fresh truffles in Calgary?

    I thought fresh truffles couldn't be imported without a whole lot of red tape? I'd suggest Cookbook Co. or Lina's would be your best bet for truffle products....otherwise I read on the Canada Board that there was a Toronto co. Cheese Boutique that imports fresh www.cheeseboutique.com for contact info. HTH :)

      Mercato had some come in this fall. Very expensive though

      try e-mailing the chefs in Calgary's top hotels and restaurants, they may sell you some, it helps if you know someone though! (any cook friends who could buy from their bosses?)
      I don't think they are in season right now though, and their not worth it if the season's not right
