$700$2,100

The winter white truffle (species Tuber magnatum) or trifola d’Alba Madonna (In Italian meaning-“Truffle of the White Madonna”) is painstakingly searched and foraged mainly in the Langhe and Montferrat areas of the Piedmont region in northern Italy. Most notably, they are abundant in areas around Alba and Asti. As a result, white truffles are often referred to as Piedmont or Alba Truffles. White truffles are winter truffles, and as such, are harvested from October-December. The shortened winter season adds to the magic that surrounds the Alba white truffle- with its luxurious flavor and intoxicating scent.

Use Fresh Alba White Truffles to inspire all of your culinary creations. It is exceptionally served over risotto, pasta, eggs and it enhances even mashed potatoes or French fries. Fresh Alba White Truffles have a slight garlicky/earthy flavor similar to shallots, with a deep musky aroma; it can be finely-shaved and White Truffles are the perfect finish atop almost any dish.

Storing Fresh Truffles

Fresh truffle is truly one of life’s greatest pleasures. To savour your fresh truffle for up to 14 days we suggest:

  1. Gently wrap the fresh truffle in absorbent paper, such as paper towel.
  2. Place in a dry, sealed container like tupperware or a glass jar.
  3. Keep the container in the crisper compartment of your refrigerator avoiding the cooler areas of the fridge.
  4. Don’t be afraid to use the truffle! (It’s great for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.)

Note: Moisture is the truffle’s worst enemy – so we suggest changing your paper towel regularly.

Storing Fresh Truffles with Eggs

We love to store our fresh truffles with fresh eggs (any eggs!) in a large sealable jar for 2-3 days which infuses the yolk with the truffle aroma – wonderful when scrambled.

Storing Fresh Truffles with Rice

A secret chef tip is to store your fresh truffles in a large sealable jar for 2-3 days with arborio rice. The truffle aroma and flavour infused through the rice and makes a magnificent base for truffle risotto.

Freezing Fresh Truffles

Truffles can be kept frozen for up to 3 months though some aroma will be lost. There are two ways this can be achieved:

  1. Wrap truffles individually in foil and place into a ziplock freezer bag, squeeze as much air out as possible before sealing the bag, then freeze.
  2. Alternatively, place each truffle in a sealable container, cover with oil or duck fat to create an air barrier, then freeze.

Removing Mould from Truffles

Truffles lose moisture (weight) and aroma continually. If they grow a little mold, brush it off under running cold water and dry the truffle well before placing it in the fridge.
