Fresh Black Chinese (Himalayan) Truffles - 4 oz
Item #: TFC102
Our Price: $55.00





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.

The Chinese truffle is very similar in appearance and flavor to the European Summer Truffle (t. aestivum) and the Burgundy Truffle (t. uncinatum), although somewhat less aromatic and flavorful. However, Chinese Truffles are an excellent choice for many dishes and should not to be dismissed as inferior. Their inexpensive price also makes them a great value for first-time truffle experimenters and for anyone entertaining on a budget.


Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator submerged in a container of uncooked rice or wrapped loosely in paper towels. Fresh truffles are best when used within a week or less after they arrive.

4 oz fresh truffles. Imported from Asia

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!
