So how do we get the Truffles?
The reason why Truffles are considered to be the ‘gold’ of the food world is because of how incredibly hard they are to find. Much like the gold rush, it is a mad dash to find the truffles below the ground and to get as many as possible, preferably as large as possible. They typically are found along the roots of oak, hazel, beech and pine trees because they absorb the sugars created by the tree. Due to them resting along tree roots they can be as deep as three feet below the ground. Found in the wild and completely all natural, these fungi cannot be cultivated even though many have tried. To track them down, female pigs were once used to sniff out the fungi below the ground because to them, they smell similar to testosterone. This musky smell is attractive to most animals, including humans which may be why they are so popular! Though these pigs had a skill for finding truffles it is more common to use a trained dog because they do not eat the truffles they find. Once the Truffle is found, a small piece is broken off and reburied to let the spores repopulate.
What do they taste like?
Truffles are fungi that have an earthly taste, similar to other mushrooms you may enjoy. The flavor is so concentrated that a simple shaving will supply a bounty of aroma and flavor. They are even juiced to get every drop of this unique flavor. Their strong musky fragrance truly adds to the overall taste.
