“The most learned men have been questioned as to the nature of this tuber, and after two thousand years of argument and
discussion their answer is the same as it was on the first day: we do not know. The truffles themselves have been interrogated,
and have answered simply: eat us and praise the Lord.” – Alexandre Dumas
Known as the “Diamond of the Kitchen”, Black Perigord Truffles are prized by chefs and epicures throughout the world for their
incomparable flavor and scent. Named for the region in which they are collected, Perigord Truffles are known for their robust
aroma and rich, savory taste with notes of hazelnut and mushroom. Though many have attempted worldwide, they are not able
to be cultivated and are instead harvested by truffle hunters and dogs that have been trained to hunt them, as they are grown
underground and have a symbiotic relationship with oak, beech and hazelnut trees. Harvesting occurs in the winter months,
when the pinnacle of fragrance and flavor occurs in January. This month we invite you to indulge in one of the most sought
after gems of the world and delight in specially crafted fare featuring the Black Perigord Truffle.
