Australian Black Winter Truffle
Estimated Price per piece
The Australian Winter truffle is roughly rounded, its shape's definition molded by stones in the soil where it has grown. Its surface coloring ranges from dark brown to black. The truffle's skin is textured with polygonal, slightly raised spines. The flesh is jet black at maturity with white veins creating intricate patterns throughout. What truly defines the Perigord truffle is its intoxicating aroma and flavor. The aroma is robust, perfumed with essences of nuts, earth and garlic. The flavor is equally rich, a bouquet of savory and sweet with notes of hazelnuts, mint and forest mushrooms.
Australian Black Winter truffles are intensely flavored, thus they can cooked briefly or low and slow. They can be shaved fresh as a finishing element or infused into sauces to add depth. The volatile compounds that release truffles' distinct aroma are compromised when overcooked, but fats can capture and encapsulate those aromas. Classic pairings are rich foods such as meat, cheese and eggs.
