Description

Scientific name: TUBER ALBIDUM PICO or TUBER BORCHII VITT.

The Bianchetto truffle is also known as Tartufo Marzuolo and is a variety of truffle that is distinguished by its rather strong aroma, somewhat spicy and with a typical garlicky note; it is typically small in size.

The outer part (the peridium) is an off-white colour in younger specimens, which takes on a darker tone with russet speckling as they ripen; the gleba is also initially whitish, although it later tends to become tawny and then purplish brown, with coarse white veins.

Recommendations for use

It is perfect for those who like intense smells.
It should not be cooked, as it bears little cooking.
It can be sliced on any meat dish such as a carpaccio, a fillet, on a pizza to make it special, on a simple, traditional egg, on an egg pasta dish.

 

Cleaning and storage

Once we have purchased truffles, the question arises as to their storage. Some would argue that the best place to store them is in the stomach….but it often happens that the purchase is made in anticipation of a special dinner, with friends or family, and that a few days must elapse from the moment of purchase to the moment of consumption.

When the truffle starts to become ‘rubbery’ to the touch, it must be eaten immediately as this means that it has reached its maximum maturity.

Truffles must be stored in the refrigerator without being cleaned, and the film of soil that usually covers them must not be removed under any circumstances: it defends them and preserves them from rapid deterioration.

After wrapping them individually in blotting paper (the kind used in kitchen rolls), close them in a glass jar or plastic container, change the paper daily or as soon as the retained moisture proves excessive and store them in the refrigerator; this is the only way to preserve their aromatic virtues for several days depending on the type of truffle purchased.

It is advisable to clean them only a few hours before consumption; cleaning should be done under cold running water using a brush so as to clean even the most difficult parts.

It is also important after washing to dry the truffles well one by one with kitchen paper towels, close them again in a container and let them rest for at least half an hour before slicing them so that they can regain their full aroma.

Shipping

The Fresh Truffle is shipped with an ‘express‘ service in suitable polystyrene containers and with the addition of synthetic ice. In this way, the truffle will arrive comfortably at your home without deteriorating and without losing its properties and aroma that make it unique and unmistakable.
