The Périgord black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) is a real gustatory nugget that delights gourmets all over the world. Since 1820, at Maison Henras it has been carefully selected and packaged by our experts. Over the years, it has become a real house specialty because it is a culinary treasure with multiple uses.


Fresh black truffles can be cut into strips to enhance your dishes. We recommend around 15 grams of fresh truffle per person. It is a truffle that can be cooked, but its aromas are fragile and it cannot withstand high temperatures. It must therefore be integrated at the end of cooking, in order to spice up your preparations.
With its notes of undergrowth, musk and earth, you can marry it with potatoes, pasta, rice, or even eggs. It is delicious in a sauce on meat or in pieces on a salad.

Food and wine pairing: You can taste it with a great red wine like a 20-year-old Pomerol.


Available in season, our fresh truffles are packaged in vacuum bags and shipped by express transport. Upon receipt, we recommend opening the bags, drying the truffles and storing them in an airtight box, in the fridge, with absorbent paper to be changed every day.
A fresh truffle will keep for about 8 days.


Fresh black truffles are available in season, from late November to late March.

100% tuber melanosporum



Our fresh truffles arrive in our preparation workshops in batches of land. Our experts are then responsible for sorting, washing, brushing and cutting each truffle , one by one by hand. This meticulous method makes it possible to select the best product for your plates.

During the selection, our experts are interested in the shape and size of the truffles , to offer you a product that can easily be transformed in the kitchen. However, another factor comes into play and this is by far the most important, the flavor of the truffle . Canifage (making a cut in the skin of a fresh truffle), allows our professionals to check the quality of the truffle. They check the color of the flesh which must be dark, with white veins.


The mention “from Périgord” corresponds to the regulatory name of the truffle variety, Tuber melanosporum . It is not an appellation of origin. Black Périgord truffles ( Tuber melanosporum) can therefore be harvested in France, Spain, Italy, Australia or even Chile. We find this name on other products, such as Paris mushrooms or Brussels sprouts.

The Périgord black truffle is recognized for its subtle and intense flavors, for nearly two centuries we have made it a house specialty. Composed of more than fifty aromatic nuances, the black truffle is a complex gastronomic product. We attach great care to its preparation to guarantee you exceptional fresh truffles .

The woody notes of Tuber melanosporum are ideal to elevate and sublimate your culinary preparations. The black truffle has another advantage, it is edible raw but can also be cooked, which allows a use of which only your creativity will be the limit.

What is the price of black truffle?
