What is truffle?

Some info about Piedmont delight

Truffle is a special kind of mushrooms and it is one of the finest product of Piedmont.

Being quite rare to find, the dishes prepared with truffle are usually quite expensive, but tasting them can represent one of the best gastronomic experiences you can ever have… just try some “Tagliatelle al tartufo” and you will be amazed by the richness of its unique flavors! In Italy, truffle is usually collected during cold months, from October to January, with the help of trained little pigs or dogs. Attending a truffle hunt can be funny indeed!
