Video – How to Hunt the Black Winter Truffle (tuber brumale)
Even though the brumale is not as well known as the other black winter truffle, the Perigord or tuber melanosporum, it is well worth learning how to find it. Hardier and hence more widespread than the precious black it can be found in the wild in the colder, damp climates of northern Europe. Cultivated brumale orchards are growing in popularity in the UK right now as more people are discovering what the Italians, Spanish and French have known for many years – that tuber brumal has one of the most delectable flavours of all the black truffles. In this video we look at where to hunt and how to cook the black winter truffle. Happy hunting!
