Our village held its first truffle market today in the play area of the village school which is situated behind the Mairie in the centre of Daglan. We arrived to join a long queue of people who were waiting for the eleven o’clock school bell to ring which was the sign that the truffle market was open.
On sale were a variety of Summer truffles which are similar to the Burgundy Truffle which Paul and I have never tasted before. Slightly less aroma than the Winter truffle but just as tasty.
Wow amazing, this very grand truffle was on display.
A sample of the wares on display offered by the truffle vendors. I was so pleased that all of the truffles were from Daglan and the local area.
We headed towards one truffle seller in particular, because the Chief from La Petit Paris restaurant and Chris from our local 8 à Huit supermarket were buying from him, experts of the village. We also saw Fabrice buying some truffles for La Cantine which is another very good restaurant in our village.
Treats provided by the Mairie, very yummy truffle butter on the slices of baguette. Plus crisps and local wine.
Rosé wine was served by our Maire and members the council. Vin de Domme and very nice it was too.
Here is our truffles, a real bargain at only five euro for the three, all ready to permeate the eggs. After which they will be used in a variety of dishes. I love truffle grated over tagliatelle which as been enriched with a cream sauce.
