Several types of truffles exist, some considered more valued (and often characterised by higher purchase prices), some more linked to local or regional culinary traditions. In any case, these are nature’s products available in very limited quantities that vary from year to year.

Truffles: class n°1

Many people in the world know the word “truffles” but just a few of them know exactly how to distinguish them, how to recognise them and how to fully appreciate their qualities. It is because of this and due to all the questions that my coworkers and me have to deal every time we talk about [...]

How to store truffles

Il prodotto fresco va sempre conservato in frigo avvolto nella carta assorbente e chiuso in un contenitore di vetro o plastica. Bisogna assicurarsi però che la carta rimanga sempre asciutta: qualora sia necessario, va cambiata anche tutti i giorni. Il termine minimo di conservazione dei Tartufi dipende molto dalla tipologia (i neri e i neri-estivi sono più resistenti, mentre il bianco e il bianchetto si rovinano più velocemente), dalla pezzatura e dalla stagionalità. Il nostro consiglio è di consumarlo entro 4/5 giorni.

Roman recipe books suggested baking the tubers (their classification as fungi took place several centuries later) beneath the embers and eating them with honey. It is well known that truffles have been used as food in Antiquity, by [...]

They consist of an outer layer, called peridium, which may be either smooth or wrinkled, and of an inner “meaty” mass, called gleba. Just like [...]

Washing fresh truffles

Truffles grow underground, and must therefore be thoroughly rinsed before consumption. Soak them in cold water for a few minutes to dissolve the hardest bits of soil, then clean them with a truffle brush, carefully removing all the residues between the wrinkles of the peridium without damaging the surface. Truffles should never be peeled; just [...]
