The black truffle (Tuber Melanosporum) is a seasonal fresh food from the truffle fields between November and March. During the winter months, many restaurants offer black truffles on their menus to the delight of the most refined guests. Black truffle menus are trendy, and their demand has increased exponentially in recent years. Indeed, there are more and more black truffle plantations in Spain and the product benefits from a greater reputation.
It also means that neither chefs nor guests want to wait until the coldest months of the year to enjoy dishes made with black truffles. Why wait until November when you can offer black truffles on a menu all year round?
Its balanced flavor and lower cost compared to that of the Norcia truffle make it perfect for use in the kitchen every day, both for cold and hot dishes.
The Summer Truffle is harvested from May to August (hence the name “Summer Truffle”) but, thanks to the dehydration process, it can be consumed all year round. Using a quick drying process, which preserves the organoleptic properties of the truffle, a high-quality product is obtained, respecting the ancient Umbrian tradition.
The Dehydrated Summer Truffles in Slices can be used to prepare bruschetta, pizzas, pasta dishes, risottos, stuffing, and meat and vegetable dishes.
