    Ingredients

    White truffles

    Because these white truffles are dried and ground, they last longer than the extremely perishable fresh truffle, and can be enjoyed at a more affordable price. Drying removes the water content and concentrates the flavor.

    White truffles belong to the family representing the most highly prized mushrooms in the world. They are valued due to their deep, earthy, pungent aroma and flavor, combined with their scarcity. Truffles grow 3 to 12 inches underground in a symbiotic relationship with the roots of chestnut, oak, hazel, and beech trees.

    Truffles are irregularly shaped and warty-molded by the stones that surround them in the soil-with a rough skin-like surface covered in small crystalline projections. When mature, the surface is creamy off-white to light tan, while the inside of the flesh is cream colored with white marbling. They range in size from that of a walnut to that of a fist.

    Truffles were traditionally hunted using female pigs, which mistake the truffles' aroma for the mating hormone of male pigs. Unfortunately, since pigs are rather indiscriminate eaters, this led to the pigs consuming nearly as many truffles as were successfully harvested. Now, truffle hunters typically use trained dogs.

    The aroma and flavor of a truffle is famously difficult to describe, but it is highly umami and bears notes of garlic, wild mushroom and hazelnut. It is best to use White Truffle Powder with relatively neutral ingredients such as mild cheeses, cream, potatoes, pasta and rice, which will allow the truffle flavor to shine. Fats can capture and enhance the aroma of truffles, so they are favored partners.
