ITALIAN WHITE TRUFFLES - Tuber Magnatum Pico

Season: October - December

The White truffle, the rarest of the rare, has a short season and is found in Piedmont, Tuscany, Emilia Romagna and Marche in Italy. It comes into maturity after the September rains, after the first frost has passed. Once formed, it ripens in a single day, unlike the Périgord black truffle, which matures over a month to six weeks. 

White truffles are ivory to chestnut in colour and, upon inspection, should have an aroma that is overwhelmingly pungent, clean, and sweet, springy to the touch but not soft.

Fresh white truffles should be consumed as soon as possible to ensure the best truffle experience. Please bare in mind White Truffles shrink at a rate of 3% per day.

In all cases, we will fulfil your order in weight using the fewest truffles possible.

Cooking with White Truffles

Because they are so aromatic and pungent, but their aroma tends to fade relatively quickly, white truffles should NEVER be cooked but shaved as thinly as possible using a truffle slicer over something hot, preferably buttery, like risotto or fettuccine pasta.

They should never be mixed with any ingredient high in acidity, which would cause the flavour of the truffle to subside. Let the truffle work its magic, and always add it at the end of the preparation.

Always allow your white truffle to come to room temperature before using it to allow the aroma to develop more than straight from the fridge. 

We recommend a minimum of 10g per portion to live the true white truffle experience!

Storage: Fresh white truffles should always be stored in a refrigerator. Each truffle must be wrapped individually in absorbent paper, ensuring it remains dry.  

To prevent the aromatic contamination of other foods, we recommend fresh white truffles be stored in an airtight container. This method allows the preservation of white truffles for no more than five days.

Origin: Piedmont, Emilia Romagna, Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, Lazio, Abruzzo, Molise
