A truffle is the fruiting body of a subterranean Ascomycete fungus, predominantly one of the many species of the genus Tuber. Truffles are fungi and are therefore usually found in close association with tree roots.

Some of the truffle species are highly prized as food. French gourmet Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin called truffles "the diamond of the kitchen". Edible truffles are held in high esteem in French, Croatian, Georgian, Greek, Italian, Middle Eastern, and Spanish cuisine, as well as in international haute cuisine.

Suggestion: Although Fresh Black Summer Truffles (tuber aestivum vitt) are not as tasty as the Winter Black Truffles or even less than Fresh White Truffles, they can be quite splendid sliced into sauces, over pasta or into omelets or salad. Occasionally Fresh Black Summer Truffles can be “helped” by a good truffles’ oil or dry porcini that have been soaked in little lukewarm water and squeezed almost dry.

Storing: Keep refrigerated at under 40F for up to a week wrapped in a paper bag. We recommend consuming the truffles soon after they are received.

Season: Available from March into September.
