Black Winter Australian Truffles (Tuber Melanosporum)
Although truffles are a new crop to Australia, having begun its first harvest in 1999, the Australian truffle industry has grown immensely. Oak Valley Truffles Farm, in Perth, Australia, is the largest truffle plantation in Australia.
Sabatino Tartufi and Oak Valley Truffles have an incredible relationship to bring you the highest quality black winter Australian truffles.
These truffles are the same species as the aforementioned Perigord truffle, but now grown in Australia as well. Chefs and truffle lovers all over the world are able to have a bi-annual black winter truffle supply, as the European winter season is directly followed by the Australian winter season.
The aroma and flavor of the black winter truffles are robust. Earthy, with a hint of chocolate aroma, and strong characteristics tied to that of the “umami” sensation. Because of the rich flavor profile, from earthy to slightly sweet, the uses are limitless.
From June through August, you can enjoy these delicious black winter Australian truffles. The surface of the truffle ranges from dark brown to black. With a jet-black interior and striking white marbling, this beautiful contrast adds a stunning touch to every dish!
