Fresh Truffles

A Truffle is the fruiting body of a subterranean Ascomycete fungus, one of the many species of the genus Tuber.

This subterranean mushroom is found within the living roots of chestnut, oak, hazel and beech trees. Considered to be an aphrodisiac food, the Greeks and Romans used them for therapeutic purposes, they have exotic qualities in terms of aroma and flavour.

To keep them at their optimum freshness, wrap in a paper towel, place in either a glass or plastic container and store in fridge for 4/5 days, after this period of time freezing is recommended.

Black Autumn Truffle (Tuber Uncinatum)
Season from September - January

At first glance, the Uncinato can be easily confused with the rarer Pregiato, but these truffles have a rougher skin, more irregular shape and lighter brown interior with less contrast of veining.

The aroma is delicate and with subtle flavour hints of vanilla and hazelnut. Fantastic grated into extra virgin olive oil and spread over bruschetta or as a luxury twist to a frittata or poached egg.

For all varieties of black truffles we recommend pairing with red meat or river fish and eggs. If you like veggies, we recommend: asparagus, artichokes, potatoes, olives, mushrooms and sweet veggies (pumpkins, cauliflowers, parsnips..).
