White truffle season has begun! These white Alba Truffles (Tuber magnatum) are found in Northern Italy and are harvested in the fall and early winter.
White Truffles have a golden exterior with delicate tan or cream colored flesh and a strong musky and slightly garlicky aroma. They are almost never cooked but are usually consumed fresh, typically by being shaved into paper-thin slices over pasta, risotto or salad.
Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator submerged in a container of uncooked rice or wrapped loosely in paper towels. Fresh truffles are best when used within a week or less after they arrive.
