Bianchetto truffles (also known as Tuber borchii) are walnut to apricot-sized, full-flavored truffles prized for their pungent aroma. In taste, Bianchetto truffles are identical to one of the Italian Tuber borchii – with strong flavors that are earthy, sharp, garlicky and buttery.
Our truffles pair beautifully with rice, risotto, potatoes and pasta, and are heavenly when served with succulent meats and seafood. Truffles can be shaved or sliced as the perfect finisher to luxurious dishes and salads, and infused into oils and sauces that are truly divine.
Although traditionally found growing wild in Mediterranean climates, Bianchetto truffles can be cultivated in mild coastal areas like central North Carolina, where our family farm is located. Our plantation produces large, intensely flavored truffles from February through mid-March, ready for shipment worldwide.
