Inside No. 9, Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 2) 2016-2022

Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 2) 2016-2022 And so we enter part two of our Black Truffle feast… I open part two with a piece of incredible music. Behrman is a wonder and his compositions scratch an itch with me that rarely gets a going over. It’s timeless music that feels like it transcends all around it, yet floats in a fixed position – … Continue reading Inside No. 9, Episode #4: Black Truffle Recipes (part 2) 2016-2022
