The white truffle is the most exclusive and most expensive mushroom in the world. Because of this exclusivity, it is also known as white gold among mushrooms.
This prestigious mushroom is characterized by a highly intense, earthy odour and distinct flavour. This unique, refined flavour can best be preserved by roughly grating the truffle. Add the shavings of grated white truffle to pasta, risotto or egg dishes for a unique twist.
Fun fact: the strong and typical flavour of truffles can be attributed to the fact that they grow underground. They therefore remain small and highly concentrated.
