Truffles, a very ancient tradition
Truffles have long been used and loved in Europe. If you look back, even Romans knew this powerful ingredient. This fungus, known for its aroma, is now becoming mainstream in the United States. As many write, we can find a truffle dish in a Michelin restaurant and also at the grocery store if you look for truffle oil or truffle cheese.
Of course, the value is very different. Black and white truffles, the two most common varieties, could cost up to $10,000 per pound. Among them, there are flavor differences and different shapes. Black truffle usually is larger; the best variety is in France. The white truffles, instead, are the most highly-priced. The best quality is in Italy, Piedmont.
Today, truffle is the king in the kitchen
We can use them to season pasta or meat. The season is coming! Leaving summer and the warm weather on our back, truffle hunters are ready to go to work. The scent is so strong that they bring dogs or even pigs because these animals are famous for their incredible sense of smell. Olfaction is, in fact, very important because truffles grow underground.
Not for everyone?
But truffles, unfortunately, are not for everybody's possibilities. As we already mentioned, the price can be very high. That's why, recently, the market started to season different ingredients with truffle flavor. Today, truffle occupy a vital role in the culinary world. Experts like to say that it has become a widespread trend. For example, it's infrequent in New York City to find a pizzeria that hasn't the truffle oil to make the pizza more gourmet and particular. Also, in restaurants, it looks like the menu is full of dishes with truffle treatment: pastas, cheeses, and truffle French fries. Truffle aroma is the key to making a regular dinner "special."
