About Fresh Winter White Truffles (black and white truffles)

The white truffle seems something out of this world, literally. Gourmets like to call it “the Earth’s gold.”

What you can see is an irregularly shaped lump of the color of an old ivory statuette. Unless you knew this fungus was dug out of the ground in an Italian forest, you’d probably believe it came from a different planet. By the way, ancient Romans were sure that truffles appeared in the places where the lightning struck.

But what surprises you even more is the smell of this yellowish and brownish lump. Very quickly this smell fills your nostrils, your mouth, and your room. You can feel a mix of musk, garlic, cheese, and spices.

All you want at the moment is to put a little slice of the truffle on your tongue. Or to shave the mushroom over your pasta, risotto, pureed soup, or lobster.

You’re only one click away from bringing your wish into life! Fresh white truffles from Piedmont, Italy, are available for sale at Marky’s.

Important Facts About White Truffles

  • The true white (Alba) truffle from the Piedmont region in Italy is defined as Tuber Magnatum Pico. If you buy any product claiming to contain white truffles, like truffled butter, look for this Latin name in the ingredients.
  • Alba truffles grow only in the wild and can’t be cultivated in orchards like black truffles.
  • Harvesting Alba truffles takes a well-versed hunter and one or two dogs. These dogs are trained to find truffles by their aroma.
  • You can keep white truffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. But don’t freeze them. The fungi lose their fragrance gradually. So, you’d better make use of them as soon as they arrive to you.

Price for each truffle. You are charged based on the actual product weight shipped. Actual price may vary due to the current market value. Truffles are formed naturally in the ground therefore each truffle may vary slightly in size and color.

All About White Truffles

All About White Truffles

Across the globe, Italy is known as the premier location for hunting and foraging truffles, which grow only a few months each year. As we approach the heart of white truffle season, discover what you need to know about the prized tuber, from forest to table with our guide below!

WHAT ARE WHITE TRUFFLES?

Truffles are tubers that grow a few inches underground. They thrive close to roots of hardwood trees like oaks, hazelnut, and chestnut. While all truffles are deeply valued, the white truffle from Alba (a particular species called tuber magnatum) is the most desired for its unforgettable flavor. They have a knobby shape, firm flesh, and pale golden color. White truffles are sought after for their larger size (as big as 9 centimeters in diameter!), limited quantity, and quality of taste.

WHAT DO WHITE TRUFFLES TASTE LIKE? (how to use white truffles)

The golden, spongy tuber boasts pleasantly pungent aromas that give way to deep, earthy flavors from its cream-colored center. We love to shave the truffle in paper-thin slices over a variety of dishes, from pasta and risotto to eggs and meat.

WHERE DO WHITE TRUFFLES GROW?

Every fall, Alba is enveloped in white truffles as citizens — along with the rest of the culinary world — eagerly await the daily arrivals. But before reaching the table, the white truffle undergoes on a unique journey.

White truffle season is from September to December when they grow wild in the forests around Alba, a small Piemontese township. In particular, they grow deep in the forests of Langhe, a fertile area in Piemonte perfectly situated between the Tanaro and Po Rivers and the Alps and Apennine mountain ranges. Le Langhe comprises rolling hills filled with vineyards and hilltop towns known for producing great wines, cheeses, and — of course — truffles. The soil is primarily clay and marl, allowing the truffle to grow larger around the roots of oak, poplar, and linden trees.

Each is individually sniffed out by a dog, which a professional truffle hunter has trained since puppyhood to detect the unique scent. (Truffles were once hunted by pigs, until we realized that pigs loved them as much as we do!) Once the dog reveals the location, the hunter digs out the truffle, gently cleans it, and finally shares it with the lucky recipient.
