What are Black Summer Truffles?

The most popular truffle used in Italian cooking. Their earthy rich flavour develops as the season progresses, offering wild mushroom, hazelnut, vanilla and earthy tones.

Appearance, Aroma and Flavour

The surface is black in colour and resembles a textured bark from which the Italian name ‘Summer Scorzone’ is derived. The insides feature a golden tone, entwined with branches of white veins and almost resembling a nut like appearance. At the beginning of the season they start with less flavour, delicate, and once mature towards midsummer, the flavour has fully developed to become much stronger.

How to use Fresh Truffles

Suitable on any dish! They are best sliced if used raw, or grated if cooked. Largely used in Italian cuisine in stuffed pasta or in meat roulade sauces. They are however, fabulous on a slice of bread with a little extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt.

For a starter we recommend you allow approximately 10 grams of Black Summer Truffles per person. Please allow approximately 20 grams per person for a main course.
