When the outlying countryside takes on its winter colours, the black diamond becomes worth its weight in gold. Connoisseurs hurry around the burlap sacks already savouring the scent! Then head to the kitchen, where the renowned chefs as well as the amateur cooks have the skill to transform foie gras or brouillade or even apple tart in no time at all! In an elaborate ceremony, the truffles are weighed on hand-held scales and carefully wrapped, money is discretely exchanged and produce handed over from grower to gourmet customer. Did you know that 92% of truffles sold in French markets are sold at markets in Vaucluse?
Lovingly harvested on the slopes of Mont Ventoux, the “tuber melanosporum” is traded in Carpentras, with buyers coming from far and wide.
