It’s the perfect way to start the new year – a truffle tour of Provence…
Provence in January – it must be truffle time!
Christmas is over, New Year’s Eve has been and gone but the best is still to come! In January, you can join a fabulous and unique tour of Provence. One where authenticity and gourmet delicacies come together to warm the chill of winter – because January in Provence means truffle time!
Provence is home to the Tuber Melanosporum, commonly referred to as the black truffle, or even as the “black diamond”. The black truffle season starts in November but the potent aromas don’t completely mature until January.
Taking a gourmet trip to the South of France in January is a must for any foodie and Your Private Provence has put together, for the third season, a luxury gourmet Provence tour to highlight the aroma and culture of the truffle.
