I’ll start out.

Hi Everyone!

I’m Alana and I am one of the instructors of the course. A little about me:

I currently live in Edmonds, Wa (that’s just north of Seattle for those of you not from the US), which is actually the town I grew up in! Small world. It’s by the ocean (Puget Sound to be more exact!)

I live here with my 4 dogs, Duff (a big black lab mix), Ryu a Red tri-australian Shepherd, and two Lagotto Romagnolo, Lolo and Jean Luc.

Do I have a favorite truffle species to eat?
It’s a tough call. I really like Perigord Truffles (Tuber melanosporum) personally, but there is one in Europe I would love to try that apparently tastes like smoke- or bacon-y is how I’ve heard it described and I really want to try it (Tuber rufum).

Something most people don’t know about me: I’m also a small scale oyster farmer 😉 Not commercially- but it is fun!
