FAQs

What are truffles?

Truffles are a type of fungi that grows underground, on the root system of oak and hazelnut trees. 

What are they so rare?

Truffles are exceedingly rare, because they are very hard to grow. They take many years to develop and are unpredictable from season to season.

What do they taste like?

This is a hard question to answer! Many people describe truffles to taste earthy with a hint of garlic. When used in cooking, you only need a hint of truffle to completely transform a dish.
