Better than gold.
By sourcing the freshest truffles directly from 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 “Perigord” Truffle is a true natural luxury from Italy and France. 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!

Sourced from Italy and France.
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.
Shipping & Returns -
Quality is paramount in the products we sell. These fresh truffles are shipped and packaged as quickly as possible. Due to their perishable nature, and to maximize their freshness, fresh truffles are only shipped via FedEx Standard Overnight. Please note that orders placed on Friday will not ship until Monday.
