Italian Summer Black Truffles (tuber aestivum) are the milder cousin to the Winter Black Truffle (tuber melanosporum). Much less expensive, this variety first appears in late Spring and continues throughout late summer. The interior color profile ranges from creamy blonde to a light brown with incredible intricate veining.
Summer Black Truffles have a beautiful light hazelnut perfume and deep nutty flavor. Due to their low price point, Summer Truffles are an absolute blast to shave... go totally wild when breaking out the truffle shaver!
Summer Truffle flavors really shines when warmed. We recommend applying heat when using Summer Truffles; layering under the skin of a chicken perhaps before roasting , or tossing in warm pasta with black pepper & our Parmigiano Reggiano 24 month dop.
This item has two variant options, .5 lb or 1 lb of fragrant Italian Black Summer Truffles
