Located between Dijon and Beaune, surrounded by vineyards and fields, La Maison aux Mille Truffes is a peaceful and wooded area that invites you to enjoy your time. Key words at L'Or des Valois: history, good food, simplicity and great encounters! Thierry and his son Yann welcome you to their shop to introduce their family business created in 2003. Sit back in the lounge area and let them tell you the secrets of the truffle, from ecosystem to excavation method.
After a bit of theory, it's time for practice!
Head over to a landscaped area of the park, where you can observe the work of Julio or Elfe, their dogs trained in truffle hunting. Trust their senses and watch them dig up the black gold of the Dukes of Burgundy! Follow them, encourage them and your efforts will be rewarded with a tasting session of truffle products!
Sample tasting examples include Sausage with Burgundy truffle, Toast of rabbit or guinea fowl terrine, Toast of poultry rillettes, Parsley ham, Toast of fresh cheese and Burgundy truffles, Goat's cheese topped with truffle honey, Italian tapenade (olive & anchovy spread) with summer truffle on a toast and Chocolate profiteroles garnished with truffle ice cream, always with a small glass of ratatruffe!
