MANJARES DE LA TIERRA
IN SEASON ALL YEAR
Manjares de la Tierra specialise in growing and harvesting black truffles in Teruel, Spain. One of the most exquisite of delicacies, but not one easy to come by, they select their truffles in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way. As an exclusive supplier, we are proud to work with Manjares to offer the finest summer and winter truffles.
An underground fungus, truffles grow near the roots of certain trees such as oak or holm oaks. Truffles do not come into contact with the roots of the tree, but joins them through an imperceptible mycelium. Trees and truffles share a symbiotic relationship, they are linked to one another.
They are often found up to 20 cm deep in the soil and so deeply rooted in the earth that it takes a dog’s nose to be able to extract the truffle. Without their specially trained dogs, it would be impossible to find them at the optimum moment of ripeness.FIND OUT MORE
