White "Alba" Truffles (Tuber magnatum) are found in Northern Italy and are harvested in the fall and early winter. Italian White truffles come from these principal regions: Piemonte, Toscana, Marche, Umbria, Lazio and Molise.
White Truffles have a golden exterior with delicate tan or cream colored flesh and a strong musky and slightly garlicky aroma. They are almost never cooked but are usually consumed fresh, typically by being shaved into paper-thin slices over pasta, risotto or salad.
Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator. Fresh truffles are best used within approximately one week after they arrive.
