Why does it deserve our mention? For the perfect combination of the best fresh winter truffle and duck foie gras of the highest quality. Maison Pébeyre was founded in 1897, but it wasn’t until 1920, when they moved to Cahors, that they began to offer their know-how in everything relating to truffles.  The truffle is impulsive, rare and very seasonal (from October to mid-December) and very hard to find.  Because it grows underground, in forests, near only a few kinds of trees, man needs the help of trained dogs to find them.  Black truffle can make up 10% of this foie and we find it masterfully cut and incorporated in thin slices.  The most exquisite detail is that, in this case, the truffle doesn’t take away from the foie but accompanies it in harmony, achieving both fantastic flavor and scent.  A 100% natural product where, apart from the foie gras, the only other ingredients are Tuber Melanosporum truffle, salt and pepper.
