Black winter truffle, tuber melanosporum,  has an exquisite, pungent flavour. The truffle has a crusty black skin and is dark in colour on the inside with white veins. Black winter truffle is a luxury addition to dishes. It has a sublime, earthy flavour reminiscent of undergrowth with hints of dried fruit and cocoa.

Black winter truffle is best paired with simple dishes that allow its flavour to resonate - the French adore black winter truffle shaved over scrambled eggs, paired with foie gras, or slivered over a celeriac soup. Most important of all - the black winter truffle should not be cooked - its aromas are far more potent when shaved, slivered or sliced over dishes at the last minute.

This whole black winter truffle is foraged in Acqualagna, the home of Italy's truffle market, by Marini & Azzolini who have been collecting and producing truffle products for over 50 years. 

Ingredients: Black truffle (tuber melanosporum), water, salt. May contain traces of gluten, milk, celery, anchovies, nuts.
