White Alba Truffle

$240

Price upon request : ericportrait@groupe-axyon.com

The white truffle, also known as the "white truffle of Alba", is harvested mainly in the north of Italy, although it is starting to appear in other countries, such as France. It is the rarest and most valuable of all truffles, which is why it is priced much higher than that of other species.


Its fragrance and taste are strong and intense, reminiscent of fresh garlic, shallots or even cheese.
Its color is rather pale yellow and sometimes even ocher. Traversed by many white veins, the color of its flesh varies from creamy white to white speckled with pink depending on the maturity and the tree with which it lives in symbiosis.

It is a very fragile truffle, which cannot be cooked; it is therefore eaten raw, grated on a risotto or in thin slices ...

Harvest period: October to December

Tasting advice
The black truffle goes very well with eggs (in omelette, scramble or boiled), pasta, risotto, game, fish, as well as meat and poultry.

Storage
Fresh truffles can be stored in the refrigerator (between 2 ° C and 5 ° C) in an airtight box lined with absorbent paper, to be changed every day.
Consume within 5 to 7 days.

Tip : place fresh eggs in the box with the truffles. The aromas of the truffle will penetrate the porous shell of the egg and therefore flavor it naturally. Perfect for your omelets and scrambles!
