Sarlat Truffle Festival 2019
They say the woods around Daglan
grow secrets in the ground,
and the Perigord Noir hide the rarest
of truffles to be found.
The truffle may be ugly,
found by pig or dog,
but everyone agrees
its flavour is to savor.
Hundreds of people were tightly packed around a marquee full of truffles in the Medieval Quarter of Sarlat last Saturday morning. After waiting a few minutes a loud sigh was heard from the gathered crowed as the side panels were removed from the marquee and each person breathed the amazing truffle aroma emanating from within.
And this is what it was for, Perigord Black Gold of every size and every price.
A close up. The truffles in the basket on the left were grade 1 priced at €900 per kilo.
There were also stalls selling delicious Street Food and with demonstrations of truffle based cuisine from Master Chefs.
We are very predictable, we looked for the truffle macaroons. Which are delicious. Just had to buy four, for testing purposes of course.
A first for us, truffle cheese. Which is rich and creamy with the distinctive flavour of truffle, I can highly recommend it.
Don’t miss Daglan’s Truffle Market which is open until February.
