Our Featured Gourmet Truffle
The French fresh Black Summer Truffle, Tuber Aestivum Vittadini, are in season from late-May through September. This truffle is blackish-brown to black and is covered in pyramid-shaped warts that are depressed at the top.
The interior or flesh of the Black Summer Truffle is firm, solid and has a light brown, dark brown color, marbled with numerous, thin, branching veins. The aroma is mild and pleasant and becomes stronger with age and the taste is mild as well and reminiscent of walnuts or hazelnuts. Cooking this mild and delicate truffle will most likely destroy the flavor, instead add thin slices to dishes for the finishing touch.

Fresh truffles are seasonal products, not inexpensive, and are renowned as a wonderful, flavorful and aromatic gourmet product, one that every connoisseur should experience at least once in their life. Preserved truffles are almost as exquisite, just slightly less emphatic in their flavor and aroma, more affordable and able to be stored longer.
