Did you know?
Good timing is crucial for harvesting truffles: a truffle harvested too soon, will have little or no aroma and taste; a truffle harvested too late, will be spongy and have an unpleasant smell, not good for consumption. The harvest for the Périgord black starts in late November, lasting until February and often March.

I left France 15 years ago for the Silicon Valley.Let me state it clearly, it's not for culinary reasons that I moved ... Food is so important to us French people! I miss so much the taste of those black truffles we grow at home! Hmmmmmm, that truffle omelette with a good bottle of Château Gruaud-Larose (it's a Bordeaux "Grand Cru"). Felt like home!!! Thank you wwww.truffes.com , thank you so much. Count on it, I'll be back soon!

Between Legend and Reality
Truffle hunting is undoubtedly one of the aspects of the truffle, which has contributed the most to the fascination and myth surrounding it. The conditions needed for their growth, the peculiar methods to find them and the difficulties to harvest them, create an atmosphere of mystery and legend. Combined with very real market challenges and turmoil, hunting for truffles is unlike any other plant search and harvest, and as much a part of the adventure as eating them.


Timing and Patience
The secrets to find truffles and the rituals to harvest them have been preciously guarded and passed from one generation to the next for centuries. Truffle hunting takes place from dawn to mid-mornings, when the air is fresh and not affected by the higher temperatures of daytime or the odor of nocturnal animals; this is the moment when truffle scent is more distinct and lasts longer. Truffle hunting is also a solitary, discrete, quiet task: the hunter moves slowly through the woods, all senses sharpened, looking patiently to find their position from a crack in the soil, the flight of flies over a specific area, or to be alerted by his dog detecting the aroma of ripe truffles, “a delicate and always uncertain enterprise” (Taming the Truffle; Ian R. Hall et. al.)

Good timing is crucial for harvesting truffles: a truffle harvested too soon, will have little or no aroma and taste; a truffle harvested too late, will be spongy and have an unpleasant smell, not good for consumption.

An important reference for any truffle hunter, are the so called “truffes de marque
