Fresh Perigord black truffles
The black Perigord truffle (Tuber melanosporum) is a real taste nugget that delights gourmets from all over the world. We have been selecting it since 1820 for the chefs who trust us. Over the years, it has become a real house specialty.
The selection of our fresh truffles
Our fresh truffles arrive in our preparation workshops in batches. Our experts are then responsible for sorting, washing, brushing and canning each truffle, one by one by hand. This meticulous method allows us to select the best product for your plates.
During the selection process our experts take an interest in the shape and size of the truffles, in order to offer you a product that can be easily transformed in the kitchen. However, another factor comes into play and this is by far the most important, the flavour of the truffle. The canifage (making a notch in the skin of a fresh truffle), allows our professionals to check the quality of the truffle. They check the colour of the flesh, which must be dark, with white veins.
The Tuber melanosporum
The black truffle of the Périgord is known for its subtle and intense flavours, for nearly two centuries we have made it a house speciality. Composed of more than fifty aromatic nuances, the black truffle is a complex gastronomic product. We take great care in its preparation to guarantee you exceptional fresh truffles.
The woody notes of the Tuber melanosporum are ideal to elevate and sublimate your culinary preparations. The black truffle has another asset, it is edible raw but can also be cooked, which allows a use of which only your creativity will be the limit.
