Italian Black Summer truffles present a fruiting body with a rough alligator skin-like surface covered with small diamond-shaped projections that were molded by stones surrounding it in the soil. When mature, Italian Black Summer truffles are near black on the surface with a pale grey flesh and white marbling that does not change color when exposed to air. They have a rich woodsy aroma with flavors of garlic, wild mushroom and earthy hazelnut undertones. Black Summer truffles are more subtle than the winter variety. 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. When you buy Black Summer Truffle you will receive a 50g Black truffle butter for free! Store in the refrigerator, wrapped in paper towel. We recommend consuming the truffles as soon as possible after you receive them.
