The season begins on October and it lasts till the end of December
It is called “Alba truffle” or “Acqualagna truffle”
It grows in many regions of Italy such as Piedmont, Marche, Umbria, Abruzzi and Molise.
The White Truffle is the most precious truffle on Earth. It has a remarkable commercial role.
Savor these beauts over risotto, eggs, pasta and even mashed potatoes. Use these fresh white truffles as the final touch of a dish, no cooking required, since the bulk of their flavor lies in the strong scent that would be destroyed by heat. Slice them paper-thin (don't forget the truffle slicer!) and use them to finish off a preparation. The heat of the dish will bring out the intense aroma of the winter white truffle for a fabulous effect.
