Fresh Black Truffle (1 Ounce)
Better than gold.
By sourcing the freshest truffles directly from France and Italy, Mikuni has established itself as one of the leading purveyors of truffles in North America. Mikuni works closely with truffle hunters and foragers who have been tied to this land for countless generations. We're lucky to partner with them this year to offer their truffles: the best of the best you can find.
The Black Winter Truffle is a true natural luxury from France and Italy. Rare and indulgent, they are sought after by epicureans & Chefs around the globe who see them as black gold—they're considered the best of the best when it comes to black truffles. With an earthy, musky scent and flavor, they're only available for a short season each winter.
You'd be wise to shave it over scrambled eggs or a simple risotto, and we'd certainly not stop you from putting it on a pizza. The truffle is such a rare gem that Mikuni packages it in a sleek glass jar, nestled atop arborio rice.

Mikuni Wild Harvest ships out their fresh truffles overnight express Monday through Thursday. This way, your truffles will arrive by week's end and won't sit in a warehouse over the weekend! If you order on a Thursday or Friday, please allow additional shipping time. Your patience will be rewarded!
To our friends in Alaska and Hawaii: Because these truffles have to ship overnight to guarantee they're at their freshest, we are unable to ship them to either location. We only want the best for you!

Care & Notes
Always refrigerate truffles and do not wash truffles with water. Simply brush them off with a soft brush. At the most use a slightly damp paper towel to brush any existing dirt off the truffles, but only do this right before use. Truffles are always best consumed within 2 days of receiving them (this is when their aroma is at their highest) but they can be kept for up to 4 days in the fridge in the container they arrive in.
Please note truffles may shrink slightly in transit.
