Truffles

In many ways Dorsia Provisions started as a truffle company. The hustle of the truffle season has many ups and downs but is exhilarating in so many ways. While truffles are available almost year-round in some form, the most celebrated are the Tuber Magnatum (or White “Alba” Truffle) whose musky splendor begins to send canines in Europe into a frenzy in mid-September and the Tuber Melanosporum (or Black “Perigord” Truffle) which is unearthed in late December. The excitement of the first whites "Albas" of the year gives way to a divided interest when blacks "Perigords" begin to pop up in early December. With the end of the year, usually comes the end of the white truffle season, which is often met with both great sadness (as well as great relief) from having made it through another successful, yet turbulent voyage with the mercurial white mistress. I wouldn’t trade it for anything and I hope that the time tested knowledge and expertise that we implore here allows Dorsia Provisions to be your preferred truffle supplier, whether you are buying a few grams or a few kilos!
