Winter black perigold truffles

Known as the Perigord truffle, the black winter truffle has dark, robustly-veined flesh and the strongest flavor and aroma of all the black truffles.

The Périgord Truffle is known to occur in parts of France, Spain and Italy. Professional truffle hunters use either pigs or dogs to help them locate truffles and It is one of the most expensive edible mushrooms in the world.

Truffles should be enjoyed raw, or slightly warm, shaved over pasta, risotto, potatoes, with cheese dishes, and creamy soups or sauces.

Truffles are expensive because it is very hard to farm them. The Périgord Black Truffle grow in the root systems of oak and hazelnut trees and is one of the world's most expensive luxury foods.
