The king of the table par excellence, the prized White Truffle is the finest and most expensive among all the truffle varieties. Its aroma is unmistakable and exceptionally intense and delicate at the same time. It is harvested in autumn until the very end of december. The size varies, from around 10g to 50g.
How to use
To facilitate the truffle cleaning process, soak it for around ten minutes in cold water. Afterwards, rinse the (last) soil residues from the truffle under running water with the aid of a brush (a fingernail brush is suitable, in alternative you can also use an old toothbrush). Once the truffle is cleaned, you can use it to your taste on warm dishes, which enhance its flavour. Slice it raw using a truffle-slicer with an adjustable blade in order to obtain very thin slices. We recommend adding the White Truffle to recipes based on butter, cooking cream, cheese or eggs.
We guarantee the freshness of our truffles through a short supply chain, purchasing the product directly from trusted truffle hunters, also known as “quarrymen” or “trifolai” in Italian.
Keep for 7-10 days in the refrigerator inside an air-tight container and wrapped in kitchen paper, in this way the aroma is not disperse and the natural moistness of the truffle is absorbed. For this same reason, we advise to change daily the kitchen paper. Clean the truffle only before the actual use, since it is better preserved in the soil residues. Once cleaned, consume and/or freeze within 1-2 days.
