SELECTION OF FRESH WHITE TRUFFLES

The Alba white truffle (Tuber magnatum pico) is increasingly rare and continues to make Alba, a town in Italian Piedmont, a stronghold of the white truffle, famous . Unadapted to cultivation by man, the white Alba truffle has built its reputation on its indescribable and intoxicating taste.

Our fresh white truffles are received in our workshops in sandbags, in order to preserve the freshness of the truffles during transport. They are then immersed for a few seconds in cold water to free them from the last large particles of earth. Then begins a work of goldsmith, like precious stones, each truffle will pass under the hand of our experts, they will brush all the truffles by hand and sort them according to their quality and their size.

Unlike the black Périgord truffle , the white Alba truffle is not canned, its selection is done by nose and touch only, to preserve the aromas inside the tuber .


WHITE ALBA TRUFFLE

Francis Ford Coppola says that Alba white truffles have “a unique taste, rare, precious and very difficult to describe”. It is a product endemic to Italian soil, an unusual dish with a very particular aroma composed of an infinite palette of tree essences, the olfactory result is close to the mixed scents of garlic and honey.

The alloyed notes of Tuber magnatum pico accompany with panache the simplest dishes such as pasta, ravioli or a slice of bread with a drizzle of olive oil. The white truffle is only eaten raw because its scent is too volatile to withstand any cooking.
