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. Although not as prized as the winter variety, Summer Black Truffles are still considered a culinary treasure.
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 light yellowish-grey flesh inside. Though the Summer variety is not as perfumed or flavorful as the winter truffle variety, their fragrance is lovely, yet very subtle. Best used in simple dishes to let the Fresh Truffle flavor be the star without being over powered. Truffles are often used sparingly shaved over fresh pastas or risottos!
