At Tartufi Bianconi’s Summer means Black Truffles!
Thanks to the heavy rain we had late spring now the truffles are sooooo perfumed and tasty! The real name of this truffle is “Tuber Aestivum” but local people call it “scorzone” and that’s the way we like it too.
It’s an exciting experience to go on a truffle hunt, the weather seems to be favourable and we hope to find many this summer!
Pippo—our truffle dog—is at the forefront despite his age (he has just turned 13!!!). He cannot wait to go out in the woods with his master hunter Saverio, always looking forward to the next adventure and please don’t chase him or he’ll run faster and faster away from us!
After the hunt we’ll find out many cool recipes to use the fresh truffle the traditional (and the unconventional) way!
This year Gabriella is making a lot of Frittata! It’s a very popular dish because it’s easy, delicious and also good for vegetarian and gluten free diets! You can enjoy it hot or cool, sliced liked that as we served it yesterday….yummy!
