Latin name : Tuber aestivum
Why was this product created? So you can enjoy cooking authentic truffles all year long without breaking the bank!
Distinctive features Our dried black truffles are made from finely sliced, 100% Italian fresh truffles (a variety called Tuber aestivum Vitt. or summer truffle). Dehydrated, they fully retain their flavour and fragrant aroma. Soak them for 5 minutes in water, milk, cream or broth to enjoy just like fresh truffles. Since fresh truffles are very hard to find (and only in season), dried truffles are a way to add a luxurious touch to your dishes.
Method of production The truffle is rare, difficult to find and to cultivate. It grows in the earth, at the foot of trees such as oaks and hazelnuts which abound in Italy in Piedmont. You have to find it with the help of sniffer dogs or pigs. In addition, it is not known if the truffle is ripe before it comes out of the ground.
The artisans behind this product The Laurentiis family has carefully prepared several Italian specialties for two generations. Passionate, she happily shares authentic traditional recipes, each more delicious than the next.
Use Ideal with pasta, potatoes or risotto, they are delicious with grilled meat, fish, eggs or even as an omelet.
