Available during the colder months, from November till about March, reaching peak during December - perfect to gild your best Holiday dishes! Our Extra Choice Perigord truffles have a near perfectly round shape, which makes for beautifully even slices and less waste when shaving.
Instructions for use and storage: Don't cook for long periods of time or over excessive heat. Shave over dishes at the end of the preparation or when plating. The heat from your dish will bring out the aroma and flavor of the truffle. Store in the refrigerator wrapped in a paper towel.
