Truffle Omelette or Omelette aux Truffes is a regional recipe from perigord, made from one of the most expensive ingredients in the world.
The Black Truffle also known as the black diamond is one of the rarest and most expensive ingredients in the world. This exceptional fungus grows 3 to 12 inches under the ground near the root of trees, and is from France's Perigord.
Usually located by pigs or dogs that have been trained for years, it may be a while before we find one of these on our for-edging walks!
From a good friend who helped us to move here in the first place.
Put 1 truffle in an airtight container with the eggs a few days before you make your omelette.
The truffle infuses flavour into the raw eggs through their shells, and adds to the flavour.
