A-grade is great for infusions, has fully developed flavour and longer lasting aroma than lower grades.
It's everything a truffle should be. The difference between nice, and WOW!

  • Sharing order with a friend (roughly 50/50)
  • Several different aromas (each tree's truffle is unique)

SHIPPING, DELIVERY, COLLECTION INFORMATION 

Refrigerated courier delivery currently unavailable for lower valued orders

The only current option remains Express Post. +$16.50

Orders must be placed by Sunday Evening
We prefer to send Monday (Tuesday latest) if someone wants to use them, or needs it for interstate. This allows 1-4 days for delivery same week.
Auspost requires substantially more packaging and effort, and post office trips = missed harvest hours... we may withdraw this option later in the season.

Shelf life

A Truffle's aroma is at its best for 4-7 days from harvest, and should ideally be used within 7-10 days. The aroma reduces gradually over time, but the full flavour remains. Truffles may last longer when stored properly, but each truffle varies and needs to be checked daily.
It is better to tailor your order date to your event date, perhaps allowing a few days of infusions before the main event.
Purchasing direct from the orchard reduces handling delays, providing that peak aroma for much longer.

Truffle Storage Tips

Usage

Depending on the dish 3-5 grams per person, per dish is generally a suitable amount.
Examples (A-grade truffle only in some cases)

  • 15g per roast chicken,
  • 1g per egg,
  • 5g per 125g butter,
  • 5g per bottle of vodka infusion
  • 7.5-10g per 500g mashed potato

Truffles are heavy, a fresh truffle sinks in water.

  • 40 grams of truffle is around the size of a golf ball, and sufficient to infuse 4 eggs at once. 
  • 160 grams is tennis ball size, and suited to large families or a week of luxury

TIP: A few days infusing ingredients is a good way to get a few tasty meals before actually consuming the truffle itself, in several main dishes. 

TIP: A useful comparison, truffle on the table is typically half the wine cost per person, and far more memorable.

Spray Free

Our Truffle Orchard is run on organic principles, fostering the symbiotic relationship between the truffle and host tree. We believe there is no place in the production of a delicate, gourmet product for the use of either herbicide or pesticide sprays. which can reduce flavour and aroma of truffles.

Perigord Black Winter Truffle (Tuber melanosporum) is regarded as the best of the commercially tamed truffle species

Eg. 60 grams
12-18 serves depending on dish,
which would suit a family of four for 3+ meals
