Every morning in the frosty winter dawn in Italy, truffle hunters and their trusted dogs set out to gather the most elusive and delicious of all fresh truffles: the Italian white truffle from Alba, tuber Magnatum Pico. With its intoxicating scent and luxurious flavor, it will inspires your best dishes. The rare Alba is only available for an exquisitely short season, which means once the season starts we hurry to plan our truffle menus.
New shipments arrive twice a week so you get the freshest, most aromatic truffle possible.
Savor these beauts over risotto, eggs, pasta and even mashed potatoes. Use these fresh white truffles as the final touch of a dish, no cooking required, since the bulk of their flavor lies in the strong scent that would be destroyed by heat. Slice them paper-thin (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.
NOTE: Fresh white truffles are charged based on the actual weight shipped. The price of Italian white truffles can change weekly, and you will be charged based on the prevailing price the week your order ships.
