Œuf Poché en Meurette, Foie gras de canard du Périgord, truffes d'été

Chef’s recipe: Poached egg en Meurette, Périgord duck foie gras, baby sprouts, goat’s milk curd and summer truffles

Christophe Maury, chef of the gastronomic Le Bouilhac Restaurant located in Dordogne not far from Lascaux, exalts summer truffles in a poached egg en Meurette (red wine sauce) foie gras and truffle recipe: what better way to wow your guests!

White truffle star of summertime tables

The white summer truffle (Tuber Aestivum) is harvested from April-May to end August. Not to be mixed up with its friend the black truffle (Périgord truffle - Tuber Melanosporum). The white truffle is only visible during the summer season and cannot stand cooking. It is eaten raw and grated exclusively.
Today, it has become a highly-desirable product for its mild taste and finesse on the palate, yet was ignored for ever-so long and used solely for training truffle dogs and for feeding pigs.
Chef Christophe Maury from Le Bouilhac Restaurant invites you to discover a recipe centre-staging summer truffles served with poached egg en Meurette (red wine sauce), duck foie gras and goat’s milk curd from the region.
