Fresh AUSTRALIAN Perigord Truffle (Tuber melanosporum)
If you are interested in this product, please contact us for the most up to date prices as prices change weekly.
Tuber melanosporum is known around the world as the culinary diamond of the kitchen. Also referred to as the black winter truffle, or mostly commonly as the Perigord truffle, named after one of the regions in France where it is commonly collected. Perigord truffles are native to Europe but they are also successfully cultivated in other parts of the globe, such as Australia.
They are appreciated for their unique and heady aroma. Because the Australian winter corresponds with summer in Europe & the US, this means that you can now enjoy real fresh black winter truffles in the midst of summer! Earthy with aromas that bring to mind damp forests, with hints of molasses, chocolate and tobacco.
Perigord truffles have a dark outer skin with large, diamond-shaped pyramids, and a marbled chocolate or deep slate grey colored interior when ripe.
They are served raw on warm dishes, but also can be heated (slightly) to release a more robust flavor and aroma, and are ideal for infusions.
We recommend this product is consumed as soon as possible, within 1 week. If stored properly they can have a longer shelf life, but aromatics decrease with time.
All Perigord truffles are listed at Market Price.
*All of our truffles are harvested by dog & handler location teams and sourced from our colleagues and friends in Australia. We can even send you a photo of the dog that harvested your truffles.
You will receive a truffle care instruction guide with each purchase.
