Fresh Black Winter Truffles
Available in the following quantities
The king of black truffles and almost certainly the most exciting truffle variety for chefs. Often known as the “Périgord” truffle, but most of the best European black truffles actually come from Spain. We work with two long term partners in the mountains of Catalonia and Aragon and the quality is sensational – this is our most popular truffle variety. The flavour is rich, intoxicating, decadent and utterly delicious.
£45 – £250
Fresh English Autumn Truffles
Available in the following quantities
Our English black autumn truffles are personally hunted by us with our dogs, found growing wild in the woodlands of a unique and very special family farm at a secret location in Wiltshire. Black autumn truffles have a delicious mild, fragrant yet earthy truffle taste and work beautifully in many seasonal autumnal dishes.

Fresh Spring White Truffles
Currently unavailable, expected February 2021
Often known as “Bianchetti” or “Marzuolo” truffles in Italy, Spring White truffles are usually at their best from February to early April. At their peak spring white truffles can have an intense and very interesting garlicky aroma, although the flavour is milder. They work beautifully in certain dishes and combine well with other spring ingredients such as morels, asparagus and wild garlic.
Fresh Black Summer Truffles
Currently unavailable, expected May 2021
Summer truffles have the mildest aroma of the main truffle species. They could never compete with the flavour and decadence of the winter truffle, but they do become more interesting as the season progresses and they are now fully ripe and delicious. Our summer truffles are currently sourced from the hills around Modena in Emilia Romagna (Italy), hunted in the wild by our main long term Italian partner, who selects the finest and ripest truffles from each hunt for us. To appreciate summer truffles they should be used in very generous quantities – don’t treat them with the restraint or respect you’d show to the more precious varieties – they can then be delicious in dishes where a milder truffle is required.
£35 – £300
Fresh Australian Black Winter Truffles
Currently unavailable, expected June 2021
The favourite truffle of most of the world’s leading chefs, Australian truffles are the same variety as the European black winter truffle – aka “Périgord” truffles – giving us the chance to experience superb quality black truffles during our own summer months. Our Australian truffles come fresh and direct from our good friends in Manjimup, deep in the Southern Forests of Western Australia. The flavour is rich, intoxicating, decadent and utterly delicious – they’re arguably the finest black truffles on the planet.
£45 – £225
Fresh Honey Truffles
Currently unavailable, expected August 2021
Honey truffles are totally unique – the world’s only sweet truffle, found almost exclusively growing wild under black locust trees along the River Danube in Hungary. The aroma is reminiscent of honey and button mushrooms; the flavour starts quite similar but has a very long lasting sweet aftertaste. They are loved by many of the world’s most forward thinking chefs, especially in Japan and Scandinavia. Due to their sweetness honey truffles work very well with desserts, but also in many savoury dishes. They are softer than other truffle species and vary in colour from white to cream and yellow. A unique ingredient – perfect for something very special and different!
£35 – £250
Fresh Italian Autumn Truffles
Currently unavailable - expected September 2021
A very close relative to the summer truffle, identical externally but with a darker internal colour and a more powerful flavour and aroma. They are found in different areas to the summer truffle and have a later harvesting period. Black autumn truffles have a delicious fragrant yet earthy truffle taste and work beautifully in many seasonal autumnal dishes.
£50 – £400
Fresh White Truffles
(tuber magnatum pico)
Currently unavailable - expected October 2021
There is a good reason why everyone goes crazy for white truffles during their short season – from autumn into winter – the aroma is just out of this world and perhaps the nicest smell on the planet. White truffles must always be served raw – grated or sliced over a dish just before serving. They are usually served on simple dishes – traditionally on egg, pasta, risotto or fonduta. Truly a magical experience…
