Mad about Truffles is a story about hunters, poachers, breeders, traders, star chefs and ... a priest. The film is set in the black truffle kingdom of the world: The Provence in the south of France. The 'black diamond' is the magical centre of a unique world populated by diverse people. Their profound passion for this illusive mushroom which rises from the below is what unites them. The film shows how the truffle enchants the senses, incites dreams and becomes a jewel in Haute cuisine.
