Although not as prized as the winter variety, Burgundy black truffles are still considered a culinary treasure. They are very similar to the summer truffle but are distinguished by their interior color which is lighter with chocolate brown flesh. Like the winter variety, they grow among oak, hazelnut, elm, poplar and chestnut trees. Their appearance is quite similar to the winter variety, with a dark, round outer skin and yellowish-grey flesh. Though not as perfumed as a white or black winter truffle, their fragrance is lovely and subtle. The perfume of a truffle is very volatile and disappears rapidly, cooking time should be limited. Shave thinly using a truffle slicer onto freshly cooked pasta or on top of a nice steak.
Truffles are a true natural luxury. Rare and indulgent, they are sought after by epicureans around the globe who see them as black gold. This deliciously decadent ingredient stimulates the senses and indulges the palate.
