Périgord Winter Truffle

from 65.00

The Périgord Winter Truffle, from France, is a more savory counterpart to the floral Italian White. This truffle's aura is rich, deep, and earthy, with a touch of wine, sugar and spice that especially comes to life when heated.

Famously sniffed after by pigs, today most Périgords are searched for with the aid of trained dogs, who have come to be preferred. The real reason is that pigs are so infatuated by the earthy aroma of black truffles that there are stories of truffle hunters who have lost fingers while attempting to rescue the fungus from their ravenous snouts. 

Available in increments of ounces and pounds. 

 

***Unfortunately the 2015 winter Périgord Truffle season has ended. Keep us in your thoughts for the 2016 season***
