Fresh Black Truffles - delivered to your doorstep
One of the great pleasures of winter is the arrival of fresh truffles. From humble beginnings the Australian truffle industry has grown rapidly and now threatens the French as the largest producer on the planet.
Truffles are grown in may parts of Australia where the soil, trees and climate provide suitable conditions for the black Perigord Truffle - Tuber melanosporum - to grow.
By special arrangement with the local distributor we are delighted to offer our clients fresh Australian Black Truffles from Manjimup in Western Australia. These are regarded by many as Australia's best and can be found on tables in the finest restaurants across the globe.
Each Friday we will receive a delivery from the distributor and ship fresh truffles to those who have ordered. We will not hold stock and will only purchase what is required to ensure only the freshest truffles are delivered to your doorstep. Truffles may be collected Friday at our 21 Toorak Rd store, or for those not local, will be sent Express Post so they arrive on your doorstep in great condition.
Like all things special, truffles are not cheap. These black truffles are priced at $2500.00 a kilogram. That said a 40 gram truffle goes a long way. Shaved or grated over scrambled eggs or risotto it will easily serve 8 and provide a hedonistic aroma of incomparable complexity.
We have a minimum order of 40 grams and for your $100 you will get something very special.
To purchase truffles please phone Asaf on (03) 9326 5737. Orders must be received by 4.30pm Thursday to ensure Friday shipping.
