Summer Truffle Gift Set
This is the perfect gift set to buy a truffle lover!
Black summer truffles are the most common of the black truffle because they have such a long season. They are available from May to September, and they are excellent value for money. Our very own Fine Food Specialist branded truffle shaver to go with the fresh summer truffle is the perfect way to get the right-sized slice of truffle. This species of truffle is quite subtle in flavour, so we recommend adding truffle oil to enhance the flavour and give you the full truffle experience! Summer truffle is perfect shaved over a bowl of cacio e pepe, to add an extra earthy punchy flavour. Alternatively, shave over a plate of mushrooms on toast, or into a tasty risotto.

How to clean and keep fresh truffles
The truffles we deliver are so fresh, they may still have a fine covering of soil or sand from when they were first unearthed. Washing them under a cold tap for a few seconds, then drying them gently, won’t affect the truffle’s flavour.
We advise to consume our fresh truffles within 3 days of receiving.
Once they have been gently cleaned, wrap each truffle individually in a fresh sheet of kitchen paper towel. Place the wrapped truffles in a clean, airtight plastic or glass container, such as a flip-top jar with a tight seal.
Change the paper towel every morning and re-wrap the truffles. Put them back in their container and refrigerate, repeating the process until you are ready to use them.
We suggest keeping fresh truffles in the coolest part of the fridge, ideally at 1 to 2°C, but be careful not to freeze them!
