Fresh Black Autumn Truffles (Tuber Uncinatum)
Our divine fresh Italian Black Autumn Truffles are hunted daily from 1st October to 31st December in the woody hillsides of Umbria and neighbouring regions, to ensure optimum ripeness. We ship them directly from Italy to you the same day as they are un-earthed to guarantee their quality and freshness.
Expect Italian wild truffles with a delicate hazelnut and underwood aroma that immediately transports you to autumnal woods, and a hint of sweet vanilla and chocolate in their flavour. As soon as you open their travel box, these autumn black truffles’ perfume will reveal a richer more complex truffle than their Summer Truffle cousins at just a fraction more in price.
We love adding thin shavings of fresh Black Autumn Truffles into autumnal soups to provide an unexpected piece of theatre to a commonplace dish.
Our truffles will arrive already clean, they are carefully brushed by our truffle hunters following our guidelines before they are brought to us for market. They will last for up to 7 days stored in a fridge following our very simple guidelines.
Before serving your Black Autumn Truffles, simply wipe their bumpy diamond textured skin which can be all shades of brown with a damp cloth and leave for 10 minutes on a dry cotton cloth. Expect thin shavings in hues of cream to caffè latte interlaced with white capillaries.
Less is more when using Black Autumn Truffles, allow just 7 grams per person.
