Description 

 

 

Fresh Black Truffles from sub-Himalayan Asia (t. indicum, t. sinensis or t. himalayensis) are commonly known as "Chinese Truffles".

While Chinese truffles are less pungent than the European truffle, they can still be a good - and affordable - choice for truffle lovers on a budget.

Chinese truffles have gotten some bad press over the years, since the days when unscrupulous truffle dealers often tried to pass them off as their more expensive European cousins, t. melanosporum and t. aestivum.

But Chinese truffles have nothing to be ashamed about. The overall quality of Chinese truffles has improved enormously in recent years and many experienced truffle lovers have become fans of this less expensive member of the truffle family.

Very similar in appearance and flavor to the European Summer Truffle (t. aestivum) and the Burgundy Truffle (t. uncinatum), the Chinese truffle is worthy of consideration and should not to be dismissed as inferior.

Even though they are somewhat less pungent than the European truffle, Chinese Truffles are still a good choice for many dishes. Their inexpensive price also makes them a great choice for first-time truffle experimenters!

Fresh Truffles are shipped packed in rice which will become infused with truffle flavor and aroma. We recommend using it in your favorite risotto recipe.

Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator in the rice in which they were shipped. Fresh truffles are best used within approximately one week after they arrive.

3 oz fresh truffles. Imported from Asia

Recipes

Black Truffle Frittata
The mild flavor of eggs is particularly suited to show off the subtle nuances of truffles of all kinds.

This recipe makes one simple three-egg omelet, but you can feel free to experiment by adding other ingredients to your frittata.

The result will always be improved by the addition of a little more truffle. Be sure and take the time to truly savor it!

Angel Hair Pasta with Black Truffles
There is nothing quite like a fresh truffle. It has a wild, earthy flavor which is at its best when seasoned sparingly and served with neutral flavors. Truffles are rare. For this reason, too, they bring something exotic and special to your table. This recipe is adapted from one by Emeril Lagasse. The secret to it is very simple seasonings.
