From The Wild To The City-Fresh White Truffles
White truffles are an amazingly delicious culinary luxury that takes any ordinary dish and makes it extraordinary! White truffles are fairly rare and only available a few months out of the year. And they are practically exclusively from one part of Italy, where they then are foraged by special dogs. They usually grow among a variety of trees, including oak, hazel, poplar and beech, with the Italian variety favored by star chefs all over the world. Each and every year, there are fewer of them, making them a great luxury commodity in the culinary world and amongst food aficionados.
There’s a special and unique aroma to white truffles that everybody loves. And their rich, yet delicate, taste is renowned by chefs worldwide. For the 2014 white truffle season (from September through December), we at Casa Truffle are excited to announce a special program that will deliver delicious white truffles right to your front doorstep from Alba, Italy.
From the Wild to the City white truffle program will save you time on money and shipping so that you can enjoy its unique complex flavor in the comforts of you your own home. So instead of having them to buy them from a grocery store or online specialty food store, we can deliver them right to your home so that you get fresh and scrumptious truffles you’ll want to use in all sorts of recipes.
As one of the most expensive food items in the world, they’re known as the diamonds of the culinary world. These rare mushrooms are prized all across the globe for their distinct flavor that people can’t get enough of.
White truffles are so rare that they have a shelf life about 10 days after they are harvested, so getting them to the consumer on time is of upmost importance to us. Why settle on not fresh white truffles from a third party when you can get fresh ones right from the source…us! During white truffle season, we’ll rush out orders so that you get pure freshness that’s ready to be consumed from the moment they land on your doorstep. Shave them on some pasta, risotto or use them in sauces . You can even pair them with delicious Italian cheeses, adding in some salami or prosciutto for an amazing picnic fest!
