Black summer truffle, tuber aestivum vitt, has a much milder truffle flavour than its winter counterpart. The truffle has a crusty black skin and is beige in colour on the inside. Summer truffle works particularly well grated over salads, scrambled eggs as well as in sauces to add an extra flavour dimension.
Black summer truffles are ideal for introducing people to the complex flavours of truffle for the first time. Winter truffles can be overpowering for someone new to this ingredient, but the more subtle flavours of summer truffle are a good stepping stone.
This whole black summer truffle is foraged in Acqualagna, the home of Italy's truffle market, by Marini & Azzolini who have been collecting and producing truffle products for over 50 years.
Ingredients: Summer truffle (tuber aestivum vitt), water, salt. May contain traces of gluten, milk, celery, anchovies, nuts.
