NZ Winter Truffle
Perigord black truffles (tuber melanosporum) are the champagne of truffles for discerning chefs who treasure its earthy aroma and rich chocolate flavour.
Grown beneath the soil among the root systems of specific types the truffle develops a symbiotic relationship with those trees. When ripe the truffle exude a scent reminiscent of undergrowth, strawberries, wet earth or dried fruit with a hint of cocoa. Traditionally pigs were trained to detect the scent, but they tended to enjoy truffles as much as us so now dogs are more commonly used to hunt out these treasured fungi.
