Perigord Black Truffle (Melansporum), Fresh
The Perigord black truffle (tuber melanosporum) has a much stronger flavour than the Autumn and Summer black truffle varieties. Highly prized for its strong aroma and wonderful taste, the Perigord black can be cooked without losing any of its earthy, nutty flavour. This is a great truffle to cook with as the delicious flavour is enhanced and adds great depth to dishes.
For information on storage and cooking, please read our guide to truffles.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not ship truffles on Mondays as we receive them fresh on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Origin: We source from Australia, France, or Spain
How to clean and keep fresh truffles
The truffles we deliver are so fresh, they may still have a fine covering of soil or sand from when they were first unearthed. Washing them under a cold tap for a few seconds, then drying them gently, won’t affect the truffle’s flavour.
We advise to consume our fresh truffles within 3 days of receiving.
Once they have been gently cleaned, wrap each truffle individually in a fresh sheet of kitchen paper towel. Place the wrapped truffles in a clean, airtight plastic or glass container, such as a flip-top jar with a tight seal.
Change the paper towel every morning and re-wrap the truffles. Put them back in their container and refrigerate, repeating the process until you are ready to use them.
We suggest keeping fresh truffles in the coolest part of the fridge, ideally at 1 to 2°C, but be careful not to freeze them!
