Description

The Italian Black Summer truffle's fruiting body has a rough alligator skin-like surface covered with small diamond-shaped projections, molded by stones surrounding it in the soil. It has a rich woodsy aroma with flavors of garlic, wild mushroom and earthy hazelnut undertones. Our summer black truffles are grown and cultivated in northern Italy. This truffle is called Summer Truffle or “Scorzone” in Italy, due to its rough skin. This is one of the most popular truffle variety as it grows in many kinds of terrain (especially near oak trees, hazelnut and pine trees). Highly valued for its culinary uses, Fresh Black Summer Truffles taste have a mouthwatering sweetness, resembling hazelnut. Since the summer truffle has a more delicate flavor, it shouldn’t be used in dishes that are cooked. Like good extra-virgin olive oil, the heat will destroy the flavor. Instead, shave thin slices of the truffle onto dishes to finish them. A little goes a long way! They can be shaved fresh as a finishing element or infused into sauces to add depth. The volatile compounds that release truffles' distinct aroma are compromised when overcooked, but fats can capture and encapsulate those aromas. Thus, it is often that they are paired with rich foods such as meat, cheese and eggs. Black Summer truffles pair well with lobster, caviar, fois gras, pasta, cream sauces, garlic, shallots, light-bodied vinegars, mascarpone, aged hard cheeses, citrus and herbs such as tarragon, basil and arugula. Truffles will keep, dry and tightly wrapped or stored in rice, for one to two weeks.
