Truffles

If you're a fan of the rich, earthy flavour of truffles, you're in luck. You don't have to travel to Italy or France to get your hands on these coveted culinary treasures. You can buy truffles online from Fine Food Specialist and have them delivered right to your door.

For the ultimate fine food indulgence, it’s difficult to beat truffles. For centuries they have been one of the most prized ingredients in the culinary world. Despite some attempts to harvest and cultivate them, it is the wild truffles which are more commonly favoured by gourmands, chefs and foodies alike.

Truffles are a rare and highly sought-after ingredient, making them a bit of a luxury item. But with the convenience of buying truffles online, it's easier than ever to indulge in their unique flavour and aroma.

Whether you're looking for black truffles or white truffles, there are plenty of options available for sale online. And while they may not come cheap, the flavour they add to your dishes is unparalleled.

What Is a Truffle?

Previously described as the ‘diamond of the kitchen' both black and white truffles are treasured in the culinary world. They are extremely hard to find (usually by specially trained dogs or pigs) and notoriously hard to cultivate whilst boasting a rich unique flavour. Our range varies in price depending on the colour, type or size to suit all occasions. Our expertise and passion for all things truffles have resulted in our diverse assortment of truffles and truffle products such as truffle oil.

What Are Truffles Made Of?

Truffles are a type of edible fungi that grow underground in association with the roots of certain trees. They are highly prized for their unique and intense aroma, which is often described as earthy, musky and slightly garlicky. Truffles are used as a gourmet ingredient in various dishes, particularly in upscale cuisine.

Truffles are not made up of multiple ingredients like traditional dishes, rather they are a type of fungus. The main components of truffles are:

  1. Fungal Mycelium: Truffles are the fruiting bodies of a type of underground fungus. The actual truffle that is harvested is the result of the growth of the mycelium (the vegetative part of the fungus) within the soil.

  2. Aroma Compounds: Truffles are known for their strong and distinctive aroma, which is caused by the presence of various volatile compounds. These compounds are released into the air and contribute to the characteristic scent that truffles are prized for.

  3. Texture: Truffles have a firm and slightly spongy texture. They can vary in size, shape and colour depending on the species and stage of growth.

Truffles are typically found in regions with specific soil and climatic conditions and they are often associated with certain types of trees, such as oaks and hazelnuts. Truffle-hunting dogs or pigs are used to locate the truffles underground, as they are buried beneath the soil.

There are different types of truffles, including white truffles and black truffles, each with its own flavour profile and culinary uses. Due to their unique aroma and rarity, truffles are considered a luxury ingredient and are used sparingly in dishes to enhance their flavour.

Black Truffles

The most desirable varieties of the black truffle (Tuber Melanasporum) on offer is the winter truffle, like the Perigord (originating from France) or other varieties foraged in Italy. These winter varieties are rich and aromatic and are stronger in flavour than the autumn or summer black truffle. 

Even more indulgent and prized in the culinary world is the white truffle or Tuber Magnatum, which is harvested from September to December and boasts the most flavoursome and pungent flavour of all varieties.

Alba Truffles

The Alba White Truffle or Tuber Magnatum Pico, originating from the earthy hills in the Alba area of Piedmont, Italy, truly is the jewel in the crown. Heralded as the 'King of Truffles’ it is famed for its pungent and aromatic flavour and usually it's served fresh as it is so delicate.

Truffle Products

Similarly, our truffle food products make a perfect accompaniment to our fresh truffles which lend their flavours to dishes like risotto and pasta or even work well in sauces and salads. You can enjoy such truffle products as:

They surely will add the unique and aromatic flavour of truffles to your dishes for any occasion. The fact is that our truffle oils have become our most popular truffle product. It's due to their versatility and earthy, rich flavour when infused with only the best quality extra virgin olive oil.

Truffle Hampers

On our website items can be bought individually or in sets. You can additionally opt for the truffle hampers which are amazing food gift products you can buy for your dear ones.

From shaving truffles over pasta or risotto to incorporating them into sauces or spreads, there are endless ways to enjoy these gourmet delicacies. And with truffles for sale at Fine Food Specialist, you don't have to worry about paying exorbitant shipping fees or dealing with customs.

Why Are Truffles So Expensive?

Truffles are considered one of the most expensive ingredients in the culinary world, and there are several factors that contribute to their high cost:

  1. Rarity and Difficulty of Harvesting: Truffles grow underground and are difficult to locate and harvest. Truffle-hunting requires trained dogs or pigs that have a keen sense of smell to locate the buried truffles.

  2. Limited Growing Conditions: Truffles have specific soil, climate and tree associations required for their growth. 

  3. Short Harvest Season: Truffles have a relatively short growing season, usually only a few months each year, depending on the species and region. 

  4. Aroma and Flavour Profile: Truffles have a unique and intense aroma that is highly prized in culinary circles. The strong, earthy scent they emit is due to the presence of volatile compounds. 

  5. Culinary Demand and Prestige: Truffles are considered a luxury ingredient and are often associated with high-end cuisine.

  6. Perishability: Truffles have a short shelf life and can deteriorate rapidly once harvested. This perishability adds to the logistical challenges of transporting and distributing them, further contributing to their cost.

  7. Cultural and Historical Significance: Truffles have a long history of being considered a delicacy in many cultures. 

  8. Market Demand: The combination of limited supply and high demand in the culinary world drives up the price of truffles. Many top restaurants and chefs are willing to pay a premium for the unique flavour and aroma that truffles bring to their dishes.

Is Truffle Good for You?

Truffles are a unique and flavourful ingredient that can add a distinct taste to dishes, but their nutritional value is relatively limited compared to other foods. They are primarily valued for their aromatic qualities rather than their nutritional content. Here's an overview of the nutritional aspects of truffles:

  • Low in Calories and Fat
  • Good Source of Minerals: potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium.
  • Low in Protein and Fiber
  • Vitamins: traces of vitamin C and some B vitamins. 
  • Antioxidants

For the ultimate fine food indulgence, it’s difficult to beat truffles. For centuries they have been one of the most prized ingredients in the culinary world. Despite some attempts to harvest and cultivate them, it is the wild truffles which are more commonly favoured by gourmands, chefs and foodies alike.

Truffles are a rare and highly sought-after ingredient, making them a bit of a luxury item. But with the convenience of buying truffles online, it's easier than ever to indulge in their unique flavour and aroma.

Whether you're looking for black truffles or white truffles, there are plenty of options available for sale online. And while they may not come cheap, the flavour they add to your dishes is unparalleled.

What Is a Truffle?

Previously described as the ‘diamond of the kitchen' both black and white truffles are treasured in the culinary world. They are extremely hard to find (usually by specially trained dogs or pigs) and notoriously hard to cultivate whilst boasting a rich unique flavour. Our range varies in price depending on the colour, type or size to suit all occasions. Our expertise and passion for all things truffles have resulted in our diverse assortment of truffles and truffle products such as truffle oil.

What Are Truffles Made Of?

Truffles are a type of edible fungi that grow underground in association with the roots of certain trees. They are highly prized for their unique and intense aroma, which is often described as earthy, musky and slightly garlicky. Truffles are used as a gourmet ingredient in various dishes, particularly in upscale cuisine.

Truffles are not made up of multiple ingredients like traditional dishes, rather they are a type of fungus. The main components of truffles are:

  1. Fungal Mycelium: Truffles are the fruiting bodies of a type of underground fungus. The actual truffle that is harvested is the result of the growth of the mycelium (the vegetative part of the fungus) within the soil.

  2. Aroma Compounds: Truffles are known for their strong and distinctive aroma, which is caused by the presence of various volatile compounds. These compounds are released into the air and contribute to the characteristic scent that truffles are prized for.

  3. Texture: Truffles have a firm and slightly spongy texture. They can vary in size, shape and colour depending on the species and stage of growth.

Truffles are typically found in regions with specific soil and climatic conditions and they are often associated with certain types of trees, such as oaks and hazelnuts. Truffle-hunting dogs or pigs are used to locate the truffles underground, as they are buried beneath the soil.

There are different types of truffles, including white truffles and black truffles, each with its own flavour profile and culinary uses. Due to their unique aroma and rarity, truffles are considered a luxury ingredient and are used sparingly in dishes to enhance their flavour.

Black Truffles

The most desirable varieties of the black truffle (Tuber Melanasporum) on offer is the winter truffle, like the Perigord (originating from France) or other varieties foraged in Italy. These winter varieties are rich and aromatic and are stronger in flavour than the autumn or summer black truffle. 

Even more indulgent and prized in the culinary world is the white truffle or Tuber Magnatum, which is harvested from September to December and boasts the most flavoursome and pungent flavour of all varieties.

Alba Truffles

The Alba White Truffle or Tuber Magnatum Pico, originating from the earthy hills in the Alba area of Piedmont, Italy, truly is the jewel in the crown. Heralded as the 'King of Truffles’ it is famed for its pungent and aromatic flavour and usually it's served fresh as it is so delicate.

Similarly, our truffle food products make a perfect accompaniment to our fresh truffles which lend their flavours to dishes like risotto and pasta or even work well in sauces and salads. You can enjoy such truffle products as:

Why Are Truffles So Expensive?

Truffles are considered one of the most expensive ingredients in the culinary world, and there are several factors that contribute to their high cost:

  1. Rarity and Difficulty of Harvesting: Truffles grow underground and are difficult to locate and harvest. Truffle-hunting requires trained dogs or pigs that have a keen sense of smell to locate the buried truffles.

  2. Limited Growing Conditions: Truffles have specific soil, climate and tree associations required for their growth. 

  3. Short Harvest Season: Truffles have a relatively short growing season, usually only a few months each year, depending on the species and region. 

  4. Aroma and Flavour Profile: Truffles have a unique and intense aroma that is highly prized in culinary circles. The strong, earthy scent they emit is due to the presence of volatile compounds. 

  5. Culinary Demand and Prestige: Truffles are considered a luxury ingredient and are often associated with high-end cuisine.

  6. Perishability: Truffles have a short shelf life and can deteriorate rapidly once harvested. This perishability adds to the logistical challenges of transporting and distributing them, further contributing to their cost.

  7. Cultural and Historical Significance: Truffles have a long history of being considered a delicacy in many cultures. 

  8. Market Demand: The combination of limited supply and high demand in the culinary world drives up the price of truffles. Many top restaurants and chefs are willing to pay a premium for the unique flavour and aroma that truffles bring to their dishes.

Is Truffle Good for You?

Truffles are a unique and flavourful ingredient that can add a distinct taste to dishes, but their nutritional value is relatively limited compared to other foods. They are primarily valued for their aromatic qualities rather than their nutritional content. Here's an overview of the nutritional aspects of truffles:

  • Low in Calories and Fat
  • Good Source of Minerals: potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium.
  • Low in Protein and Fiber
  • Vitamins: traces of vitamin C and some B vitamins. 
  • Antioxidants
