The Black Perigord Truffle: A Culinary Jewel
The truffle is actually the fruiting body of a subterranean fungus that forms a symbiotic relationship with the roots of oak and hazelnut trees. It produces an irregular, warty culinary jewel called a truffle during winter dormancy. This “fruit” of the fungus develops slowly underground in a cluster, absorbing flavours from the earth.
