These are the true French black truffles, sliced and in their own juice. This is the species Tuber Melosporum, the species that gave black truffles their great reputation. A very fine ingredient; it is part of a myriad of French fine recipes, this fine Jarred Black Truffle.
We suggest trying this Jarred Black Truffle with some of our Artisanal Farms Organic Eggs.
Plantin produces some of the highest quality truffle products. Some may view Plantin’s package design and labeling as somewhat plain, but don’t let it fool you. We like the company because it focuses on what’s inside the package. However, even hard-core truffle lovers who are very specific about what they want will be pleased to find the species of truffles right on the front of the tin to make it easy.
Marcel Plantin started Maison Plantin in the heart of Provence in 1930. Since it started, this family business established itself as the main supplier of truffles to the grand tables of France. In 1986, Hervé Poron took over Maison Plantin and embarked upon a programme of strong growth for the company. In particular, it now exports its know-how to other countries. Just as passionate about truffle growing and the world of truffles in general, Christopher Poron, his son, and Nicolas Rouhier, today continue his work.
From the United States to Japan, not forgetting the United Arab Emirates and Singapore, from the tables of the Elysée to those of the greatest French chefs, such as Joël Robuchon, Benoît Violier, and Yannick Alleno, they all use Maison Plantin to supply them with truffles and woodland mushrooms.
Of all fresh truffles, the black truffle, tuber melanosporum in Latin: this famous truffle, also known as the “black diamond of cuisine” has, for a very long time, been the one most valued by the gastronomic world. Today, it is the foundation of the reputation enjoyed by Maison Plantin. The combination of a delicate perfume and crisp texture gives it an exceptional flavor and character.
Flagship product in the range of preserved truffles, the First Boiling Black Truffle, when properly cooked, gives off a perfume, almost as powerful as that of a fresh truffle and will delight the palate of even the most discerning.
