Gastronomica Spring Issue

My story about finding truffles in Italy has now been published in Gastronomica’s spring 2012 Issue.

Dr. Lou Jacobs, Portland, Maine chiropractor featured in Gastronomica magazine

It’s a slice of life in those uber-intense days whilst competing at the World Pizza Competitions in Salsomaggiore, Italy.

In the spring edition of this fabulous quarterly magazine about food and culture, my story reveals what its like to endure the the challenges of cooking  in one of the most demanding competitions in the world.  It is also about finding the elusive Bianchetti truffle at a time of year when most truffles lay dormant. But can I answer that age-old question…

…is there really a “Truffle Mafia?”

    After returning home last night after a great evening evening with you, Deb, Sam, & Jake I savored every word of your article (twice) and having been there, I was able to imagine all that you were describing; so wonderful!

    I am so very proud of you and all that you have accomplished with your food career and even more so for the fine husband and father that you are!

    I love you very very much,

    PS: I had a phone call from Jake this AM asking me to come over; how very sweet and how happy that makes me.
