Moncalvo Truffle Fair 26 October 2014

We ordered carne cruda, fried eggs and vol-au-vents with fonduta... Bliss... 
One of the dishes served at the fair: carne cruda, few drops of olive oil (preferably a light one from the North of Italy such as the Garda Lake or even our local oil), lemon juice, freshly ground black pepper topped by your own prized purchase...
