Truffles are the buried treasure of the vegetable world. And Italian white truffles are the most coveted. They are hard to find–most truffle hunters use trained dogs to sniff them out from where they lie buried next to tree roots–and they can not be cultivated. White truffles rank among caviar, foie gras and champagne as the world’s most decadent, exclusive foods–as much for their rarity as their extraordinary taste. What else makes them worth the effort? Their intoxicating aroma and enticing flavor. Simply combine with butter and add to pasta or rice; or, for an stand-out salad, slice and mix with porcini mushrooms and season with salt, pepper, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. Thinly sliced white truffles are also delicious served with meat dishes, foie gras, patés and stuffings. We’ve even got a truffle slicer to make things easier for you. So don’t let this once-a-year foodie opportunity pass you by. The white truffle harvesting time is now, and we’re offering the finest white truffles from the Umbria region of Italy. Buon appetito!
