The Summer Truffle, aka Tuber aestivum, is native to Europe but is also successfully cultivated in other parts of the globe and appreciated for its unique and musty, sometimes nutty, aroma. Flavor profiles evoke notes of earth, honey, nuttiness, and sweetness. It is milder in aromatics than its winter cousin but can be heated to a higher temperature while retaining its aroma and makes an amazing infusion for dishes like truffled cheese and truffled eggs.
Summer truffles have a dark, thick, rough outer skin with large, diamond-shaped pyramids, and a marbled latte/ cappuccino-colored interior when ripe.
They are served raw on warm dishes, but also can be heated (slightly) to release a more robust flavor and aroma.
