What are Truffles?

They are a type of underground mushroom known as ectomycorrhizal fungi. They’re highly prized for their unique aroma and flavor. They are expensive due to their scarcity, labor-intensive harvesting process (often involving trained dogs or pigs), and their demand in gourmet cooking worldwide.

How do truffles grow?

They grow underground, attached to the roots of certain trees, like oaks and hazelnuts, in a symbiotic relationship. They require specific soil conditions and climate to develop, which is why they are mostly found in specific regions, such as parts of Italy, France, and Australia.

What’s the difference between black and white truffles?

The main differences lie in their aroma, taste, and growing season. Black truffles, known for their earthy flavor, are generally harvested in winter. White truffles, which have a more intense, garlicky flavor, are rarer and harvested in the fall. White truffles are often more expensive than black ones due to their distinct aroma and shorter harvest season.
