Périgord or Black truffles are simply exquisite. Their subtle aroma is very sensual – characterised by earthy flavors, with overtones of sweet forest-floor notes. Their scent lifts flavors when added to other ingredients, leaving a lingering moreish aftertaste. Like all truffles, the Périgord truffle has an affinity with eggs. We savor the first Black truffle of the winter in a traditional Périgord Omelette aux Truffes – truffle omelette.
Just take a look at this seasons truffles ripening – ready for early June.
