Tuber melanosporum, sometimes called the Perigord truffle, after the legendary truffles of the Perigord region of France. Tuber melanosporum does grow in other countries, so this moniker is somewhat misleading.
Season: The black winter truffle is found in the wild throughout Europe from November through February, though the season can vary slightly.
Characteristics: Dark, robustly-veined flesh that appears almost black-purple, with the strongest flavor and aroma of all the black truffles. Notes of cocoa, earth and tannins.
Culinary Uses: Slice paper-thin with a mandoline or truffle shaver. These thin shavings can be placed under the skin of a chicken, turkey, duck or other game bird before roasting. Layer in a foie gras terrine, or try the classic recipe for Tournedos Rossini, a filet mignon with foie gras and truffles on top. Lay fresh slices on top of cooked beef, pork, or game meats like wild boar or venison. Grate truffles into wine or cream-based sauces, or shave them onto cooked pasta, scrambled eggs or potato dishes.
