The Black Truffle is less prized than the White Truffle King but it is certainly one of the most sought-after and tasted products on earth. For these reasons we find it used in many recipes, enjoyed in many dishes, an ingredient that gives flavor and fragrance.

The Black Truffle is found in the regions of Piedmont, Emilia Romagna, Marche, Umbria, Lazio and something in Southern Italy. It is flanked by plants like hazel, oak, pine and beech. Depending on the territory, the climate, the plants, the Black Truffle is collected in practice almost all year round. In particular:

  • High quality Black Truffle: from 1 December to 15 March
  • Summer Black Truffle: from 1 June to 31 August
  • Uncinato Black Truffle: from 1 October to 31 December
  • Winter Black Truffle: from 1 January to 15 March

Of those listed above, the Summer Black Truffle is definitely the most appreciated. It is also known as “Scorzone” because of its rough and rough peel. It is much appreciated in the kitchen, because of its particular flavor without forgetting that it costs much less than its more famous “relative” the White Truffle. It is a Truffle particularly aromatic, delicate taste. It has an important characteristic, it can be cooked for a short time together with other ingredients.

The Black Truffle and the diet? Very low caloric intake (31 Kcal / 100 gr), is perfect to give a minimum of precious flavor to a classic “diet” meal that we know is very poor taste.
