About Alba Truffles - Fresh Winter White Truffles from Italy
From the mountains of Italy, these precious gems from the earth abound with a rich aroma and flavor that none other can bring to your dish. The Italian white truffle, Tuber magnatum pico, is popularly known as the White Alba truffle, prized for its superb gastronomic qualities.
Remember, white truffles are almost never cooked, since the bulk of their flavor 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!
NOTE: Fresh white truffles are charged based on the actual weight shipped. Truffle prices can change weekly, and you will be charged based on the prevailing price the week your order ships.
