What are Black Truffle Slices?
Black Summer Truffles (Tuber aestivum) are usually only available from June to August. However, our preservation process extends the life of the truffle, allowing you to enjoy the incredible taste of truffle all year. We select the highest quality truffles and shave them into 2mm slices, which are then soaked in a salt brine to enhance the flavour, before being preserved in extra virgin olive oil.
What does it taste like? The truffle is firm to the bite, followed by a rich & earthy black truffle flavour.
How should I use it? Use straight from the jar as a luxury garnish for almost anything; we recommend trying on scrambled eggs, pasta or salads.
Shelf Life: 18 Months

Truffles are hunted by specially trained dogs who can sniff out a prize truffle a foot underground.
Back in the 19th century, the French food writer Brillat-Savarin called them ‘the diamonds of cuisine’ – and the myth was born. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Persians all claimed that truffles had ‘enticing’ qualities. We’ll just leave it there…
