Truffles & Mushrooms
The White Truffle – Tuber Magnatum Pico
The white Alba truffle is harvested in Italy, while other white truffles can be harvested in eastern Europe as well. Its color is pale yellow or even ochre. The white truffle has as intense flavor that reminds the taste of pepper and garlic. Being the rarest and the most sought after species in the world, the white truffle is also the most expensive.
The Spring Truffle – Tuber Borchii Vittadini
Bianchetti truffles are unique in the wild truffle world because they can be any of a wide variety of colors: brown, orange, tan, black or anything in between. Thus, color is not a good indicator of freshness. Instead, look for a firm texture and a strong truffle aroma.
The Summer Truffle – Tuber Aestivum
Known as the “Saint Jean truffle”, is harvested in France but also in Spain & Italy. It has a similar skin as the one of the black truffle but is generally bigger and firmer. Its flesh is white at the beginning of the season and becomes brown at the end of the season, remaining clear though. It has a fine and light smell of mushroom and undergrowth and a slight taste of hazelnut.
The Autumn Truffle – Tuber Uncinatum Chatin
Burgundy Truffles are gems of the autumn season. As the seasons shift from summer to fall, Burgundy truffles begin ripening along the roots of their host trees. These prized truffles tend to prefer growing along the roots of oak, poplar, chestnut, and hazelnut trees.
The Winter Truffle – Tuber Melanosporum
The black winter truffle, also known as “the black diamond of the kitchen” or the black truffle of Périgord is harvested in France but also in Spain, Italy or Australia. With a more or less rounded shape, its size can reach or even exceed the one of an apple. Its taste is very delicate and sophisticated. The texture is soft and crunchy at the same time
