The most highly esteemed of the truffle varieties, the winter white truffles from the hills of Northern Italy (near Alba) are considered the "white diamond" of Italy. Harvested from late October to mid December, these decadent delicacies grow beneath the surface soil in the roots of plants and trees. Their delightful aroma is recognized by truffle hunting pigs and dogs whose sensitive sniffers lead truffle hunters directly to their bounty.
The perfect compliment with rich, creamy porcini risotto, a freshly grated white truffle to finish this Milanese inspired dish, makes the perfect late autumn indulgence dinner.
Served with a crisp chilled Prosecco, a totally decadent delight! This week's featured recipe, Traditional White Truffle Risotto.
