Whole Autumn Black truffle
Once grated, the black truffle, is fine for adding a touch of flavor to risotto, pasta sauces and sliced grilled meats.
Truffle hunts are carried out with the help of different dog breeds; it is a tradition that large sized, long curly haired crossbred dogs with brush-like tails are the best truffle hunters. Before dogs, the famous “truffle pigs” were used, but as the swine are really greedy for the “white pebbles” it was extremely difficult to snatch them from their mouth once they got hold of them. It wasn’t rare to witness a race between animal and human, both trying to get to the truffle before the other. Truffle hunters then switched to dogs, that are certainly more reliable, in spite of a feebler sense of smell.
