DISTINCTIVE QUALITIES: Fresh black summer truffles from Europe (Tuber Aestivum Vitt) are available from May–September. Also called Umbreao truffles, these wild European truffles are known for an aroma that is less intense than their winter cousins. Subtle earthy flavors resemble oaks and chestnuts. The firm flesh presents itself in glorious marbled hues from ivory to deep gold and a beautifully textured exterior.
BEHIND THE PRODUCT: Keenly-trained dogs have replaced foraging pigs. This is because the pigs naturally devoured too many of their finds!
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Europe (Italy)
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Never cook truffles! Grate or thinly shave over your favorite warm dishes such as risotto, pasta, or eggs. The radiant heat of the dish is just enough to enhance the fresh flavors of white truffles.
STORAGE: Keep in the refrigerator, and use within 2-3 days of receiving.
