Regarding getting real truffles to train with here in Canada:

Do you know if someone can one buy truffles in the US and then drive them into Canada legally (I’m not talking about sneaking them in)?

Conveniently, I am a researcher at the University of Calgary, although none of my research is on truffles or even remotely related to them. After a quick look I cannot find anyone who studies mycology here. Do you think that Shannon Berch might be willing to help? She is in BC, but we can probably figure something out.

Also, I found the Alberta Mycological Society ( – but they don’t have anything about truffles on their site.
