Fresh Black Truffles
This item is no longer available.
The rich umami of black truffles is a flavor worth hunting for—these summer delicacies are harvested near hazelnut trees in Northern Italy using special truffle-hunting dogs and pigs who sniff out their singular scent. With a warm ochre color, the dazzling interior of these treats is much lighter than the dark brown and gray of those harvested in winter. The fancy fungi (Tuber Aestivum) are certainly a treasure, and they’re more popular than ever; now used to add some gourmet flair to an order of fries or a plate of scrambled eggs. Rare and aromatic, truffles are a luxurious addition to any dish, whether grated onto pasta or freshly shaved for a savory garnish.
