Found in the Piedmont, northern Italy, these delicately flavored truffles are usually served raw. These are part of the mushroom family, and are found underground near oak trees. They are firm, and irregular in shape, and have a very pungent, earthy aroma and flavour that is prized throughout Italy. Very expensive in price, they have a short season.
