Black Summer truffle
Estimated Price per piece
The Italian Black Summer truffle's fruiting body has a rough alligator skin-like surface covered with small diamond-shaped projections, molded by stones surrounding it in the soil. When mature, the Italian Black Summer truffle is near black on the surface with a pale grey flesh and white marbling that does not change color when exposed to air. It has a rich woodsy aroma with flavors of garlic, wild mushroom and earthy hazelnut undertones.
Its aromatic compounds are not heat-labile and therefore the truffle can be fully integrated in culinary preparations. Experts recommend those featuring extra virgin olive oil. With first courses (pasta, etc.) the intensity of its aroma can be heightened by creaming. Black truffles should be amalgamated in the dish and also used to make its presentation exciting. The dish can be decorated with pieces of truffle that has been julienne-cut (i.e. like matchsticks) or cut in extremely thin little slices.
