I ventured south to the Corbieres to visit a truffle fair in the village of Lesquerde last weekend. I’d read that at 11.30 there would be a truffle dog demonstration.
On arrival, things were pretty quiet and after enquiring, was told that it was a poor year for truffles, that just a few had been sold earlier and they knew nothing about a truffle dog! Not to worry, a few nice market stalls, including the biggest pot of stewed snails I’ve ever seen.
And the scenery was magnificant, good views of the snow-covered Pyrenees, a drive past the Cathar castle ‘Queribus’ and a scenic if rather longer than expected drive back through the Corbieres themselves.
