Black winter truffle season is December to March. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the Fresh Truffle Alert list for the next shipment.
The dark Istrian Black Winter Truffle (Tuber Melanosporum), also known as the Perigord truffle, is considered by chefs and gourmands the world over to be the finest black truffle available, making them one of the best gourmet foods in the world.
Black winter truffles can be distinguished from other black truffle varieties by their interior appearance - white veins running through black flesh. They are intensely aromatic with superb depth of flavor.
These fresh black winter truffles are perfect for sauces and risottos, but will elevate almost any dish involving cheese, eggs, or cream to legendary heights. Omelets, mashed potatoes, even pizza shine when fresh truffles are added.
Heat will awaken the full flavor of Istrian black winter truffles, so use them as an ingredient in dishes & sauces - shaved or sliced.
They are best consumed immediately, although they will last for up to 7 days in a fridge.
We will do our best to match your ordered weight as closely as possible, but we're dealing with mother nature here and may need to make a slight adjustment depending on the exact sizes of the individual pieces.
