Fresh black truffles
The Périgord black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) is a real gustatory nugget that delights gourmets 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 speciality.
Our fresh truffles selection
Our fresh truffles arrive in our workshops in batches of soil. Our experts are then responsible for sorting, washing, brushing and cutting each truffle, one by one by hand. This meticulous method allows to select the best product for your plates.
During the selection our experts are interested in the shape and size of the truffles, to offer you a product that can easily be transformed. However, another factor comes into play and this is by far the most important, the flavor of the truffle. The cutting (making a cut in the skin of a fresh truffle), allows our professionals to check the quality of the truffle. They check the color of the flesh, which must be dark, with white veins.
The Périgord black truffle is known for its subtle and intense flavors, for almost two centuries we have made it a house specialty. 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 for elevating and enhancing your culinary preparations. The black truffle has another advantage, it is consumable raw but can also be cooked, which allows a use of which only your creativity will be the limit.
