There’s a hint of winter in the air and thoughts of chefs and cooks turn to the magic of the truffle season. Truffles are harvested in winter once they have matured and are emitting the sweet perfume they are known and loved for. In Australia, the truffles are found from just below the soil surface to a depth of 20 cm by specially trained dogs that use their sensitive noses to search for the truffles.
Varying in size, from just two centimetres in diameter to as large as a grapefruit, the truffles outward appearance belies its sensual appeal and extraordinary culinary value. The Black Truffle has a shelf life of approximately three weeks after harvesting whilst it retains its distinctive taste and aroma.
If you want to be one of the first to enjoy the sheer delight of a fresh truffle, you can now order your truffles online, your truffle will be cleaned and shipped to you immediately after it comes out of the ground. The first truffles of 2017 will come out of the ground sometime from June 2017 until late August/Early September 2017.
