Black Périgord truffles (Tuber melanosporum) from Europe are among the rarest of truffle varieties. Each winter, truffle hunters use pigs or dogs to sniff out the wild fungi that grow beneath trees, most famously in France's Périgord region, for which the truffles are named. Our black truffles are harvested in France and are shipped to you fresh and chilled. Characterized by a subtle aroma and an earthy flavor reminiscent of rich chocolate, they add an exquisite quality to a wide variety of dishes. Shave the truffles over pasta and risotto, or use them to enhance classic favorites like scrambled eggs, mac and cheese, and mashed potatoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BHDC from The Great Black Truffle First off, shipment came 2 days late, which made us worried since their shelf life is very short outside of ideal conditions. From the few reviews for this product, this made nervous since it was a present. However, to our surprise, they came in perfect condition and were wrapped nicely in a temperature-controlled container. They have an amazingly pungent aroma that even when wrapped, they emanate throughout the entire room. The truffles go very nicely in simple yet rich dishes that highlight the truffle. Lovely depth of flavor. For those who want to purchase, you must know how to store them properly. Ideally, find a glass jar not too large and fill it with rice and then place the truffle in the middle of the rice, then seal air tight. Then put it in the fridge when not in use. This will extend the shelf life to about 1 week, or a couple months if frozen. There are instructions as well on the nice pouch the truffles came with. We thoroughly enjoyed the product and hopefully those who order in the future would also receive them in good condition and enjoy these delicacies! -BHDCDate published: 2018-12-22Rated 1 out of 5 by chefzabita from Not the best truffle i've ever had I was gifted these truffles from a friend for my birthday and when they arrived it was a total bust. They were extremely small and squishy with barely any smell. I took one of the truffles to a friends restaurant to have him gauge the quality and he actually said they were rotten!Date published: 2017-02-14Rated 1 out of 5 by KJSmith from Disappointing purchase The truffles we received were either not fresh or not good quality. They had no aroma or taste. We've had fresh truffles in both France and Italy and, in both cases, the aroma was so pungent, you could smell the truffles as the waiter entered the room with them. We used these truffles within 24 hours of receiving them since truffles have a very short shelf life yet it made no difference. I would not recommend these. Very disappointing considering the cost.Date published: 2017-01-27Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesGarcia from The real deal These are true French truffles, and they have all the magic you'd expect. Incredible aroma, beautiful shape and color... If you give one of these as a gift you'll be the most popular person around. If you love good food and making your time at the table truly special, you'll love these truffles.Date published: 2014-12-15
