 Enjoy the black truffle season

The black truffle season starts in our Parisian restaurants! At Benoit, Allard, Aux Lyonnais, Rech and Champeaux, the truffle is available on any A la carte options. This Tuber Melanosporum black truffle is harvested in the Drôme region from mid-December to mid-March.

The path of the truffle is a real journey of the senses appealing to all five senses:

The smell: unearthed by dogs sniffing the irresistible scent

The hearing: the sounds of rummaging through the sleepy woods

The sight: a buried treasure filled with mystery

The touch: minutious cleaning and grading of the fresh truffles. A small nick reveals a marbled black and white flesh.

The taste: penetrating, earthy, intensifying

In our restaurants, the truffle is weighed and shaved in front of you, to sublime the flavours of your chosen dish. The Chefs of each restaurant also include a suggestion on the menu to honour this beautiful product.
