Throughout November, one of Canada’s best restaurants features the truffle and a variety of mushrooms on a rotating special tasting menu. Muse in Calgary, which ranked 17th on the Top 50 Restaurants in Canada List for 2013, will spotlight a six-course tasting menu from chef J.P. Pedhirney that costs $98 per person.

The Truffle Festival, which ends on November 30, celebrates the “diamonds of the kitchen” and promises to fill your appetite for these earthy treats.

Robbins found the food delicious and the menu curious.

She writes: “When a restaurant creates buzz in Calgary, it’s natural to think diners are raving about the steak. Not so with Muse. After re-inventing itself earlier this year under new ownership, the restaurant introduced a seasonal menu that features hamachi, sturgeon, duck breast, lamb, porchetta and not one mention of steak.
