Pre-Ordered Air-Flown Fresh White Truffles from Alba 200g

The Premier Italian Tuber

These white truf­fles are in sea­son from Sep­tem­ber to Decem­ber, grow­ing wild in the forests around Alba, Pied­mont. In this fer­tile region of rolling hills where great wine and cheese are pro­duced, the truf­fles grow beau­ti­ful­ly large around the roots of oak, poplar, and lin­den trees. They are per­fect used fresh in many dish­es. To max­i­mize your culi­nary expe­ri­ence, we also offer met­al or wood­en truf­fle shavers.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Often con­sid­ered less intense in aro­ma and taste than their black coun­ter­parts in PĂ©rig­ord, France, Alba white truf­fles (tuber mag­na­tum) are desired for their own unfor­get­table fla­vor. They tend to look knob­by and pos­sess firm flesh with a pale gold­en col­or. They can grow as large as 9 cm in diam­e­ter, pos­sess­ing a pleas­ant­ly pun­gent aro­ma and deep, earthy fla­vors. Their cen­ters have a love­ly brown­ish cream col­or with del­i­cate white veins. 

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

You only need a lit­tle of this truf­fle in a dish. White truf­fles are best used fresh, not cooked, and the sim­plest dish­es show­case their full depth of aro­ma and fla­vor. Using a truf­fle shaver instead of a reg­u­lar peel­er or a knife gives you paper-thin slices that bring out the most fla­vor. Alter­na­tive­ly, you can use a microplane to get small­er sliv­ers, depend­ing on your recipe. Most dish­es only require about 10 grams of truf­fle per person. 

Alba white truf­fles go best in fat-rich dish­es like cheese fon­dues, egg dish­es, or even beef carpac­cio sea­soned with only olive oil, salt, and pep­per The tra­di­tion­al way to serve white truf­fle in Pied­mont is shaved over tajarin, an egg-pas­ta sim­i­lar to angel hair, topped with melt­ed but­ter. Some Ital­ian chefs even shave it over pan­na cotta.

AN AFFAIR OF ALMOSTHUN­DRED YEARS

The Inter­na­tion­al Alba White Truf­fle Fair enters its 90th year in 2020, with the Alba White Truf­fle World Mar­ket at its heart. Here, you can buy truf­fles from the Langhe, Mon­fer­ra­to, and Roero areas around Alba. Also part of the fair is the Alba Truf­fle Show, where great chefs show­case new recipes as wine tast­ing expe­ri­ences and gen­er­al truf­fle edu­ca­tion are offered to the patrons.
