Comments From Recent Perigord Truffle Trips
“As an ordinary Aussie, my knowledge of Truffles was non-existent. What a surprise I had when I went to the Perigord in January 2012: exciting markets set up just for Truffles, truffle farms and truffle dogs in action. Most of the markets had truffle sea salt and truffle oil and so many other products where truffles are used to highlight the taste of the food.
Joelle is such an interesting guide; she took us to restaurants where the food was covered with shaved truffle and it was so good; we visited truffle farms and the Annual Truffle Fair in Sarlat. Certainly there is nothing like this in Australia. I can’t wait to go again.”

“Being in the Périgord in winter is being at the heart of the truffle world. When you see all the black truffles together you understand why the smell lingers so far from the market place! The first market we attended was inside the town hall. Tables with white napkins were set up like a maze so you wind your way through the truffles. There was a cluster of people around one table, all admiring the largest truffle found so far that season. The truffle trip experience was a real delight.”

“In 2011, I had my first trip to the Perigord region. I was amazed at the ambiance and atmosphere within the market square. The pungent smell – whilst at first overwhelming – reminds you that you are here for one specific reason… French black truffles!!”
