Hunted in Italy’s wild forests, our Winter Périgord Black truffles (tuber melanosporum) are bursting with earthy chocolate and cognac undertones. In contrast with White truffles, Périgords taste better when subtly heated to release their unique aroma. Store them frozen to concentrate their flavor.
For centuries, the “Diamonds of Périgord” have been hunted in the forests by trained pigs or dogs. Because of their flavor, this is a chef favorite as a unique meat alternative, while Italian countrymen use them to slow down aging, boost immunity and detox.
We source from the best truffle hunters in the Piedmont region, so our fresh Winter Black truffles go from the Italian wilderness to your doorstep as promptly as possible.
