Anyone who appreciates great Italian food has probably heard of truffles before. White and black truffles are grown in nature and are entirely wild. Since the discovery of truffles, there have been countless attempts to cultivate and domesticate them into a manageable crop. However, due to the fact that they require highly specific soil, moisture and other factors, mankind has been unable to control their growth. Mainly found in Italy, truffles grow completely underground in the root systems of chestnut, oak, hazelnut and other trees. Interesting fact: Female pigs were the first animals used to hunt and harvest truffles because of its peculiar smell.
Truffles are considered one of the utmost culinary delicacies and are highly sought after for their unique taste, aroma, and rarity. A variety of wonderful dishes that range from savory to sweet can be greatly enhanced with the use of truffles, and we can’t wait to see what Chef Anthony Masas has prepared for us!
