Description

 

Whole Black Summer truffles (Tuber Aestivum) in truffle juice from the forests of Lleida in Catalunya. Black summer truffles have a milder, more subtle flavour than winter truffles, but are great shaved on to dishes like scrambled eggs, goat's cheese with honey, or a simple salad of baby leaves and walnuts with a mustard-vinaigrette dressing. Obviously they also partner well with mushroom dishes and meat casseroles, adding depth of flavour.

Tuber aestivum, the Summer Truffle, has a symbiotic relationship with beech and oak trees in lime-rich soil, growing in their root systems. Summer truffles (T. aestivum) are also referred to as Burgundy Truffles. The Burgundy Truffle was formerly treated as a separate species, Tuber uncinatum, but they are in fact the same species.
