Black Truffle Oil

The "black truffle" or "black Périgord truffle" (Tuber melanosporum) is found in the Périgord region of France and was named accordingly. Different from the white truffle based on growing location and tree preference, the black truffle grows exclusively along the base of the oak tree. It typically begins its growing season in late autumn and winter and is harvested in its peak month of January when it’s most potent. The black truffle is produced almost entirely in Europe with France producing and harvesting close to 50% of all production worldwide.

Extra virgin olive oil from Puglia, Italy combined with black truffle makes up O&CO.’s elegant black truffle oil. It is a great accompaniment or final touch to any dish. Its uses may include drizzling the oil over pasta, vegetable dishes, mushroom risotto, scallops, eggs or asparagus for a luxurious finish.
