“Held to a time-honored Provençal tradition, he had to remain patient for three full days while the truffles, sealed in a glass jar with three or six or nine fresh eggs, infused those very eggs with its delectable aroma.

The truffles are never fully cooked. Prepare with butter. Do not cook in olive oil or add pepper, as both ingredients will reduce the aroma of the Truffle.
