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, and now here successfully in the US!

These truffles are grown the lush soils of Northern Carolina or one of the farms we partner with closely in Kentucky! We always support and promote local products, and the access to these amazing truffles quality is nothing like you’ve ever had before! When you purchase these truffles, you are supporting small family farms in the region. Did you know that some of the yummy volatile aromas of these truffles you can only get within 24-48 hrs of the ground? When possible these are shipped out to you the day they are harvested!

Think earthy with aromas that bring to mind damp forests, with hints of molasses, chocolate and tobacco- and from this particular farm, aromatics of malt and earth!

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 farms we work with and visit ourselves by either our dogs or theirs. 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.

*These are listed as EXTRA CLASS TRUFFLES. 1st Class, as well as 2nd class & Pieces are also available at slightly decreased prices. Msg us for more info!
