Fresh bianchetto truffle

Fresh bianchetto truffle (tuber albidum Pico or tuber borchii Vitt.) FIRST CHOICE

The bianchetto truffle is widespread throughout the Italian peninsula and has similar characteristics to the white truffle because it has a rounded and regular shape with cavities and protrusions, it is smooth and off-white in color. In reality, the bianchetto truffle when it reaches maturity (in the month of March it reaches its maximum maturity, hence also known as the Marzuolo truffle) it becomes dark both inside and out. The bianchetto truffle almost never reaches large dimensions.

The bianchetto truffle is the “poor” cousin of the white truffle with which it is often confused, thanks to inexperienced noses. It is distinguished from the prized white for its aroma: light at the beginning, it tends to take on garlic tones later on. The commercial value of the bianchetto truffle is lower than the white one (see quotations of the white truffle). Scent and flavor of the bianchetto truffle: less intense and more pungent than the white truffle.

Use

We brush our fresh truffle eliminating only the most consistent layer of soil that surrounds it; this is because the earth residues create a layer of protection for the truffle, which allows it to preserve its aroma. The truffle must therefore be washed carefully with a brush under running water only when it is actually used. Finally, the truffle must be cut into very thin slices with the special truffle slicer; it is preferable to use cooked bianchetto truffle, sautéed in a pan, to release all its flavor and aroma. Add more slices of raw truffle on top of the hot dish as desired. The bianchetto truffle is excellent for preparing delicious first courses or for making excellent meat escalopes. Also ideal for preparing excellent croutons. You can use the bianchetto truffle to season a pasta dish (see our truffle pasta) or to make an excellent omelette. Finally, don’t forget to add the sauce par excellence to pasta or meat: our truffle butter.
