    Description

    The king of truffles. Only available a couple of months of the year, from October to December, fresh Italian white truffles are an extremely rare delicacy, prized by chefs and gourmands around the world. White truffles cannot be cultivated and therefore grow wild, almost exclusively, in some parts of Italy. Our truffles are harvested in the Apennine mountains of Central Italy and are of the highest quality.

    White truffles have a unique, intensive and exclusive aroma. They should not be cooked but shaved raw into paper-thin slices over your dish just before serving.

    Delivery
    Our truffles are harvested and shipped directly from Italy. To maintain their freshness, they are shipped in a polystyrene isolated box with ice packs. Once the order has been placed, we will contact you to arrange the delivery. We recommend that someone be available to receive the shipment and to refrigerate the truffles upon arrival. Orders are usually dispatched the day after the order, from Monday till Thursday with UPS next day delivery (24 hours service). If the order is placed on Thursday, Friday and the weekend, the truffles will be sent out on Monday.

    Truffle tips

    • Eat your truffles as soon as possible. Just before eating them, they must be washed with water and brushed under the tap. Dry well with a paper towel or kitchen cloth.

    • Keep your recipe simple. Never try to overpower the truffle with other foods with strong flavours and overwhelming aromas, as the truffle flavour will be lost.

    • Never cook the white truffles, they should only be very thinly shaved over the prepared meal (we recommend using a good quality truffle shaver).

    • The aroma of truffles is highly volatile and is carried wonderfully by fat, which is why truffles are usually paired with fatty foods like butter, cheese, cream and oils. Italians' favourite truffle matches are pasta, risotto, eggs and potatoes.

    Truffle quantity
    You will receive 50g of white truffle. Usually this equates to 2-3 whole truffles but please bear in mind that this is a wild product, so it all depends on the shapes and sizes the expert truffle hunters find.

    Prep & usage

    Shave raw thin slices of fresh white truffle over a hot dish (pasta rice, eggs, potatoes, meat) just before serving. We recommend a serving size of 7-10 grams of fresh white truffle per dish per person.

    Storage

    Truffles should be eaten as soon as possible after purchase to be enjoyed at their best.
