Marcel Plantin started Maison Plantin in the heart of Provence in 1930.
Since it started, this family business established itself as the main supplier of truffles to the grand tables of France.
Of all fresh truffles, the black truffle, tuber melanosporum in Latin: this famous truffle, also known as the "black diamond of cuisine" has, for a very long time, been the one most valued by the gastronomic world. Today, it is the foundation of the reputation enjoyed by Maison Plantin. The combination of a delicate perfume and crisp texture gives it an exceptional flavour and character.
Flagship product in the range of preserved truffles, the First Boiling Black Truffle, when properly cooked, gives off a perfume, almost as powerful as that of a fresh truffle and will delight the palate of even the most discerning.
