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.
