Fresh Summer Truffles (T. aestivum) - 3 oz
Item #: TFS103
Our Price: $65.00

Description  more details



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.


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.

3 oz Imported truffles

Scrambled Eggs with Summer Truffles
Summer truffles have a mild, mushroomy taste that can be most fully appreciated when they are paired with a few simple ingredients in uncomplicated presentations. While Summer Truffles are frequently used in many cooked dishes and sauces, their elusive flavor is most enjoyable when they are served fresh by shaving paper thin slices directly onto canapés & hor d’oeuvre, pasta, egg, potato and rice dishes. A specially designed truffle shaver can be used to serve fresh truffles right at the table. Truffles and eggs go together beautifully. Simple as it is, this is probably my favorite way to enjoy the delicate flavor of Summer Truffles – comfort food at it’s very finest.
