Fresh Black Truffles
Dear friend of Gourmet Delights,
We are happy to be able to offer you FRESH winter black truffles from France. This is the top of the truffle spectrum. Many of us travel to France in truffle season just to taste these wonderful gems!
Our supplier in France just gave us a massive discount, and we are passing the savings along to you. The truffles will be in your hands on February 7, 2013. Just in time for Valentine's Day!! Ordering deadline is January 31, 2013. We are directly importing these from France, no middle man, no delay. The only way you would get fresher truffles is to fly to France and harvest them yourself!
Black Truffles (Tuber melanosporum), also known as "Périgord truffles", grow exclusively in oak forests. The 18th-century French gastronome Brillat-Savarin said "The French black truffle is considered the finest of the edible fungi and has a place in gastronomy alongside saffron, caviar, foie gras, and the finest of wines. Widely considered as the jewel of French cooking prized for its unique flavour and intoxicating aroma". They are intensely aromatic and flavorful, and unlike their white cousins, are often cooked with the dish, although we also appreciate them freshly shaved over our meals upon serving.
Please store your fresh truffles in a cool, dark place. Wrap them individually in unbleached paper towels and put into a sealed container in the refrigerator. Use within two weeks for maximum freshness. The sooner the better in our experience. We highly recommend slicing them into thin shavings, using our Truffle Slicer, to bring out the maximum aroma and flavor.
Due to the rare and perishable nature of this item, we cannot honor coupons and ask that you order your truffles separately from all other items as the truffles require special shipping and handling. This is a pre-order and subject to confirmation once our supplier in France puts them in our hands.
Four ounces for only $399.99, or two ounces for $250. Both prices include overnight shipping to you.
