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 here in the Pacific Northwest!
These truffles are grown right here in the Pacific Northwest in the Willamette Valley! We always support and promote local products, and the access to these amazing truffles quality is nothing like you’ve ever had before! 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 kelp, the ocean, and everything that makes the Pacific Northwest so special!
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.
