100% dehydrated white truffle from Alba(Tuber magnatum Pico)
Morels are a family of tasty mushrooms with a decidedly different look to most other mushrooms. Morels lack the gills and domed caps of many other mushrooms, but they all have white to ivory colored stems and a conical cap. Dried morel caps that you may see in the market look tube shaped, but that is part of the drying process and when rehydrated the conical cap returns.
The morel’s taste and texture make them a French favorite; they will be served fresh from early spring through to the beginning of June.
Norcia Black Truffle
This is the prized black truffle found in the Norcia area. The “body” of the black truffle is of a size varying from a few grams upwards. Normally one finds small sizes, although medium-sized examples are not rare, whereas finding a large, roundish truffle is a real event.
Its peridium (the protective layer enclosing the spore-bearing organ) is blackish brown, with reddish veining in unripe examples, with the surface covered by not very marked pyramid-shaped warts with flat tops. The interior or glebe of the truffle is purplish black with very fine white veining. The prized Norcia black truffle has a pleasing and aromatic scent that becomes fully evident upon cooking. Its flavour is exquisite. It grows in the hilly and mountainous area, in sunny zones on land that is well drained, porous and lime-rich.
