Tuber aestivum known as the Summer Truffle, is native to Europe but is also successfully cultivated in other parts of the globe and appreciated for their unique and musty aroma. It is milder than its later season relative the Burgundy truffle, with a lighter interior and a more delicate flavor, but amazing nonetheless. Flavor and aroma profiles evoke notes of earth, honey, nuttiness, and sweetness.
Summer truffles have a dark, thick, rough outer skin with large, diamond-shaped pyramids, and a marbled coffee/ cafe au lait 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.
