Interesting facts

Black truffles are most commonly used with pasta and rice dishes as well as pork, beef or venison, while their white variety go well with hard cheeses, salads, salami, prosciutto, rabbit or veal.
Ecologically, truffles add very important nutrients to the soil and can be essential for the survival of their host plants by enhancing ability to withstand drought.
You can cook with truffle oil and get tipsy on truffle vodka.
When it comes to pairing truffles with wine, you can’t go wrong with aged wines of earthy notes to serve with savoury truffles, while a truffle risotto calls for lightly oaked wines like Chardonnay.
Truffles also have fantastic health benefits. They have antibacterial properties, help kill cancer cells and reduce inflammation.
