Bianchetto truffles (also known as Tuber borchii) are walnut to apricot-sized, full-flavored truffles prized for their aroma. Bianchetto truffles have 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 can be infused into oils and sauces that are truly divine.
Although traditionally found growing wild in Mediterranean climates, Bianchetto truffles are cultivated in mild central North Carolina, where our family farm is located. Our plantation produces large, intensely flavored truffles from January through March, ready for shipment worldwide.
At Burwell Farms we use a specially trained truffle dog to find truffles hidden beneath the ground level. Laddie (our amazing truffle dog) will alert his handler and his handler does the rest!
