We are pleased to be offering the treasured black summer truffles of Europe

black-truffles-umbria

Found in the Umbrian region of Italy the summer truffle harvest occurs mid-May through August.

Late at night in mid-summer, treasure hunters, known as trifolau, go out with their “smart” dogs seeking Europe’s black truffles.  They hunt at night to keep their secret spots from others.

Bringing their truffles, some as big as a pound in weight, to early morning markets where they are quickly sold and whisked around the world to select countries and restaurants.  Because of its organic composition, superior aroma, and scarcity, it is one of the most sought after items on the planet, selling at hundreds of dollars a pound in the European markets currently.

The black summer truffle aroma is earthy, unforgettable, intense and highly characteristic according to its state of ripeness.

We are delighted to bring you this delicacy from Europe served with risotto, fettuccini or gnocchi “alfredo” as an appetizer or a main course.  We are also offering beef carpaccio with shaved parmesan as an appetizer or veal paillard as an entrée to accompany the magnificent black summer truffles.
