What’s so special about the White Truffle?
White truffles are the most difficult variety to locate. They grow beneath the forest floor around the roots of roots of oak, beech, poplar and hazel trees.
Hunters lead out their specially trained dogs in late autumn through the hills around Alba. They are extremely patient and persistent individuals.
They have to be because the dogs could pass over the same spot 10 times and it’s only on the 11th visit that the truffle has finally matured and emits its special scent that the dogs pick up.
There are fewer truffles available every year. That’s because of global warming and the increasing levels of fungicides into the soil, as well as other factors. It makes them precious.
Flavours that connoisseurs swear by
White truffle gives of its best on mild dishes, such as pasta and rice. That’s why it’s a perfect pairing for Italian cuisine.
It also responds magnificently to ingredients such as oil and butter, cheese and cream.
Shave or grated over your plate, it immediately delivers its earthy aroma and transfixes you within seconds as you take your first bite.
