The Real Story

Black Diamond French Truffles, Inc. (BDFT), a development stage company organized in June 2007, is a truffle orchard in the fertile farmlands of North Carolina, USA. Committed to producing the finest Black Perigord Truffles, BDFT will soon become the largest truffle orchard in North America.

To enjoy the wonderfulness of the variously described pleasure of dining on truffles, you must eat fresh, uncooked specimens shortly after they have been harvested. The strength of the truffle flavor decreases rapidly with time, and much of it is lost before some truffles reach the market.

However, lovers of these earthly gems advise us that freshly harvested truffles can be purchased in advance from some local specialty stores. Wholesalers cover them with rice on restaurant serving trays in a refrigerated room as soon as they arrive via overnight air freight.

The next day they are delivered to the store where your order was placed. When you spend as much money as will be needed for such culinary experiments, assure yourself that you are getting truly fresh truffles.
