Searching beneath the bower of a beech tree, the fairy queen saw something white before falling into a swoon and waking up next to a man with the head of a donkey. Use today's Groupon carefully in love potions: for £15.99 instead of £39.99 get a bottle of Sacchi Tartufi white truffle oil from Arezzo Foods.
The producers of today's treasured tincture are Sacchi Tartufi, astute foragers in Acqualagna, dubbed Italy and the world's capital of truffles. Exclusive suppliers of their white truffle oil are Arezzo Foods, purveyors of the finest and fiddliest-to-find goodies, like cavern deep caviar, faraway fugu and uni cornchops. The 'white mother' of truffles grows symbiotically with oak, hazel, poplar and beech, searched out by sniffing seekers it is ceremoniously blended with extra virgin olive oil picked by fresh faced locals. These olives are garnered together and cold pressed in the local mills amongst the hills, the extract then perforated with white truffle perfume and bottle stopped.
Today's ground growing Groupon will see one of those bottles delivered to the door. Soon-to-be owners of 250ml of white truffle oil, voucher holders need to redeem their Groupon on Arezzo Food's website, sit back, and wait for the crooning postman.
