Enjoy this short, but sweet, window of opportunity to delight in the wonder of the fresh white truffle! Please remember that weights and prices are approximate. We will weigh your truffle, or truffles, and will contact you via email with your total upon charging your credit card. We receive white Italian truffles several times a week during the season.

White Truffles (Tuber Magnatum) are found in both Northern and Southern Italy (Appenini, Molise and Abruzzo Regions). They are the most rare and coveted variety of truffle, are found deeper in the ground than black winter and summer truffles, and were first discovered about 200 years ago. They mature from October to December and are prized for their pungent, musky perfume and distinctive flavor. They have a golden color on the outside and a tan, or cream, colored flesh. We pack them in Arborio rice and paper towels - they can be stored this way for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Don't cook the truffles, they are best consumed raw; typically white truffles are shaved on pasta dishes, risottos, softly scrambled eggs, and salads. Recommended serving size is about 0.25 oz.
