The Quiz: Which animal was once used to harvest truffles in Italy?

Pigs
Horses
Ferrets
Cows

Explanation : Pungent and flavorful on pasta, truffles are a staple part of northern Italian cuisine — and one of the world’s most expensive ingredients. In October and November, truffles are harvested, but humans don’t have the refined sense of smell needed to sniff out where they are buried in the earth. Pigs were once prized for their sensitive snouts, but today, a special dog breed called Lagotto Romagnolo is used, as they cause less damage to the delicate ecosystem of the woods.

Correct Answer: Pigs
