The truffle is part of France’s gastronomic heritage. It is considered a luxury item and is often used to season dishes or as an accompaniment. The truffle blends equally well with pasta, risottos, in stuffing or sauces. But the truffle also brings out the taste of certain cheeses by adding a delicate and incomparable flavour. The black, white or summer truffles all have an easily recognisable, distinct and subtle aroma, which gives dairy products an even more unique character.
Intense flavours for rare, delectable products
Known as the “black diamond”, the truffle is rare and precious. There are many different varieties including the Perigord black truffle, which has quite a strong aroma, the Musquée, the Mayenque with its lighter taste and odour, the Bourgogne and the white Alba. Each variety possesses a unique aroma and flavour. Cooked in olive oil the truffle blends perfectly with cheese, allowing the production of exquisite and delectable tasting Bries and Camemberts. Truffles can be eaten as an aperitif or just before the dessert for a festive occasion or for dinner with friends. They can also be cut into small cubes and sprinkled into a salad.
Three varieties are available from our online cheese market.
Three truffle specialities made in France by our master cheese maker are available on our online boutique: the Camembert de Normandie, the Brie de Meaux and the Brillat Savarin.
