Christmas 2019We receive a substantial number of truffle orders for delivery just before Christmas. To give us a good chance of being able to fulfil them all, we take a limited amount of orders with payment. We have now reached that point and we are now not taking any more truffle orders for Christmas. However:
In case we find more truffles than our Christmas order list requires, we welcome customers who would like to go on to our "reserves list" to receive truffles if we have a surplus. We will only take payment if we are able to supply you with truffles. The list will work on a first-come, first-served basis. To go onto this list please email us with your name, telephone number, the weight of truffles you would like (see Prices below) and delivery address (see Delivery below). If we have truffles for you, we will get in touch and arrange payment.
30 grams - £28.50
50 grams - £46.25
70 grams - £63.00
100 grams - £85.00
Prices exclude delivery (£7.50).
Truffle orders will be dispatched on Saturday 21st December, delivering on Monday 23rd before 1 PM. Someone must be in to sign for the package. You can request at the checkout that the package is sent to a different address such as your workplace or a neighbour.
Period Christmas to New Year
After we have sent out our Christmas truffle deliveries, we will not be harvesting any truffles until the week commencing 6th January.
Our black truffles make excellent eating whether sliced or grated raw over simple ingredients such as eggs, pasta, rice, chicken or fish, or when cooked. They are sustainably harvested from Dorset and Wiltshire woodlands using trained truffle hounds and sent quickly to you – no air-miles here!
To ensure you have the freshest possible truffles, typically we do not hold any stock but will supply them when we next gather any – usually every week. This means in general, we do not send out truffles on the day that they are ordered. If you require them for a specific date, please order well in advance and tell us in the “Order details” at the check out. After harvesting, washing and packing, we send them to you using a next day delivery service. Typically your truffles are with you within 48 hours of harvesting for the best possible experience.
For most dishes you will require 8 – 12 grams per person. A starter will want less than a main course.
- A 50 gram truffle is about the size of a large hens egg.
- A 100 gram truffle is about the size of a tennis ball.
Your order may be made of more than one truffle, or a piece from a larger one.
Fresh truffles have a limited shelf life so it is important that you care for them once they are with you. Learn more about caring for your truffles here.
We can also send truffle gift vouchers by email if you would like to give a truffle as a present to be used at the recipient’s convenience (subject to availability).
