(Tuber Magnatum Pico)
White Truffles are the most exquisite and sought after truffles in the truffle world. Most commonly known as the “White Alba Truffle”, these earthy gems are most famous for their complex earthy aroma and distinct unique flavor. White Truffles are meant to be only served fresh, where the heat of the prepared dish helps release the truffle’s natural pungency. Excellent shaved onto steak, risotto, fresh pasta or potatoes, there is no comparable experience to eating a white truffle.
White Truffles are in season between the months of October through the end of December and their availability and price fluctuate as the season progresses.
Fresh truffles are a highly perishable product and are intended to be used as soon as possible. Stored properly in the refrigerator truffles can last sometimes up to a week. We recommend you keep your truffles in your plastic container, individually wrapped in dry paper napkins. Make sure the container is properly sealed. The paper towels used to wrap the truffles should be replaced daily until the truffles have been used.
