Fresh Italian Winter White Truffles (Tuber Magnatum) is popularly known as the White Alba truffle, prized for its superb gastronomic qualities. From the mountains of Italy, these precious gems from the earth abound with a rich aroma and flavour that none other can bring to your dish.
Remember, white truffles are almost never cooked, since the bulk of their flavour lies in the strong scent. You will just slice them thinly (don’t forget the truffle slicer!) and use them to finish off a preparation. The heat of the dish will bring out the intense aroma of the winter white truffle for a fabulous effect. Winter white truffles are flown in fresh from Italy at least once a week!
White Winter Truffle season runs through OCT, NOV, DEC, JAN & Sometimes in FEB
Truffles naturally come in all sizes, this the reason why sizes are on average bases. Sometimes you end up with a bigger Truffle than you expected! Enjoy…
Store in the refrigerator, wrapped in a paper towel (change the paper tower daily or as needed) and in an airtight container. Also some people like to store it in a container filled with rice, you can use the rice to cook a delicious risotto afterwards.
