With a rough black exterior and brown flesh mottled with white veins, Summer Truffles (Tuber aestivum) have a delicate but distinctive aroma.
Normally harvested during the spring and summer months, Summer Truffles are ideal for canapes and first courses, pasta sauces, eggs, potatoes, rice or meat and fish dishes. They have a thicker skin than the black winter truffle, and are less pungent (and therefore less expensive!) than their winter cousins.
With their enticing flavor, fragrant aroma, spectacular appearance and moderate price, Summer Truffles are a tremendous value.
