Delicious truffles from Piedmont
In autumn, when the autumn mists rise between the vineyards and the winegrowers have finished their harvest with satisfaction, the time of the famous white truffle in Piedmont begins. Of course, the world’s best truffle, the Tuber Magnatum Pico, is found here, as locals and gourmets agree. The season of enjoyment begins in October and ends in January, always depending on whether, if it has rained in summer, because the truffle can only grow if the soil has the right moisture. The temperature also plays an important role, because the truffle likes it cold, at least at night.
But even in summer you don’t have to do without truffles, there is the black summer truffle, which is also aromatic and far less expensive than the noble white truffle.
The prices are always daily prices, we will tell you the price on request.
Every day that the truffle is old, it loses moisture and therefore also weight, i.e. already after transport it will show a few grams less on the scales. That is why we recommend ordering the truffle directly for the occasion on appointment, so that you can enjoy it fresh and it does not lose its aroma and weight by being stored in the refrigerator for a few days.
We obtain the noble tubers directly from our truffle hunters, with whom we normally go truffle hunting with our customers here on site. We organise the overnight shipping ourselves, professionally packed with an ice pack, so that the truffle arrives safely and well with you.
The truffle tastes best in combination with egg – in Piedmont it is enjoyed classically on a fried egg, over the wafer-thin tajarin – egg pasta (approx. 30 eggs per KG flour!) or over an egg souflè.
For the real white Piedmont truffle Tuber Magnatum Pico you do not need any further truffle flavouring! Toss the egg pasta in a little butter – shave the truffle on top and then just enjoy!
When you are here in Piedmont, we will organise a real truffle hunt for you with one of our Trifulau and his dog. It is a unique experience to experience the interaction between dog and man and to hold the fresh truffles, still covered with the loamy soil, in your hand and immerse yourself in the beguiling scent. Afterwards, we recommend a truffle cooking course, so you can eat the fresh truffles yourself right away.
