Description 

 

The Bianchetto truffle (Tuber borchii Vittadini) is one of the most famous wild truffles and is found abundantly in the Tuscany, Piedmont and Marche regions of Italy.

 

Bianchetto truffles are a “whitish” truffle (Bianchetto is Italian for “whitish”). Also known as Blanquette, Marzuolo (“March” in Italian) or Spring Truffles, Bianchetto truffles are a less expensive substitute for White truffles (Tuber Magnatum Pico) found in the same region. The season for Bianchetto Truffles typically runs from early January through April.

 

The aroma of Bianchetto truffles is similar to the much more expensive White Alba or Perigord truffle, although has a little more of a garlicky bite. At maturity, the exterior of the Bianchetto truffle turns light to reddish brown with irregular dark brown patches. Inside, the truffle becomes tawny to dark brown, interlaced with a network of white veins. Bianchetto truffles range in size from hazelnut to golf ball sized. Bianchetto Truffles can be used in many recipes calling for White truffles.

 

Fresh Bianchetto Truffles can last up to two weeks when refrigerated, but they should be used as soon as possible - the fresher, the better!

The intense aroma and flavor of fresh truffles is easily absorbed through the semi-permeable eggshells, infusing fresh eggs with truffle flavor.

Truffled Lobster, White Corn Pancakes & Baby Beets
An elegant extravaganza of tastes and textures. The extra work is well worth the end result. Perfect if you want to impress or for a romantic or special occasion.

Wonderful as lobsters taste served with plain melted butter, they shine when accompanied by these amazingly flavorful ingredients. Beets, you ask? They seem to be a perfect marriage! Truffles can only enhance what is there as well.

This recipe is adapted from one by the great Bobby Flay. Makes four outrageously decadent servings.

Truffled Bourbon
If you ever use a recipe that calls for bourbon, instead of ordinary bourbon, use "truffled" bourbon for a heady, mysterious flavor that is difficult to describe but wonderful to experience.

You can then use the truffles in any of your favorite recipes.
