In France, the truffle is known and recognized for the great value and prestige it brings to the gastronomic and culinary world. It is now possible to make the same statement for Quebec.
For the past few years, researchers and entrepreneurs in Quebec have been developing the cultivation and marketing of a little-known truffle that is native to Quebec; the Appalachian Truffle. Chocolate-coloured, this truffle smells the woody scents of our mountains and local flora.
Jérôme Quirion, biologist at the head of ArborInnov and Jean-Pierre Proulx, president of Truffes Québec, have been working together since 2015 to develop the cultivation of the Appalachian Truffle in Quebec and its marketing to restaurants and consumers.
