Truffle Tour

Truffle Tours 2017

Winter Truffle Tours – weekend tours (contact Emily today for your private January or February truffle tour)

Truffles are part of the Provencal winter months starting in November and going through to March. The Perigord is the traditional truffle produced in southern France.  Do you know how to find a truffle?  Of course you can go to the local truffle markets held weekly but you may also want to explore deeper this mysterious aroma.  How about finding your own truffle with a truffle grower and his dog? The truffle is a cultural highlight in winter – growing, hunting, buying, cooking and tasting.

The Truffle Tour pairs nicely with discovering the local olive oil too.  In essence, the Truffle Tour is a gourmet experience combining the best of Provence on the table (truffles, olive oil, wine & cheese) – a  culinary evasion designed by a local to brighten up those winter days.

And why not extend your Truffle Tour with a few days of skiing in the Alps!

One of the great values of truffles is their dearness. Perhaps they would be less highly esteemed if they were cheaper. – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, author of The Physiology of Taste, 1825
