Winter black truffles in season (January to March).
The Black Winter Truffle (Tuber Melanosporum), also known as the Perigord truffle, is finest black truffle available. It is in season from January to March, and can be distinguished from other black truffle varieties by its interior appearance - white veins running through black flesh. They are intensely aromatic with superb depth of flavor.
How to use them
Best enjoyed when finely sliced or shaved they can be used uncooked or lightly sautéed in butter which brings out the flavor. Perfect for adding to sauces, pasta dishes or risotto to create a truly memorable dish.
