Scorzone - Black Summer Truffle
Scorzone (Tuber aestivum Vitt.) Available from May to end of August
The Scorzone, or black summer truffle as it is commonly known, has a pronounced, textured skin and boasts a dark brown-black colour. Inside, it is lighter beige brown with fine, but haphazard veining. It's softer, earthy mushroom scent is only notable when perfectly ripe and the flavour is more subtle than any other black truffle variety – nutty, porcini with a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Despite its milder scent and flavour, as for all varieties of black truffles, we recommend pairing with red meat or river fish and eggs.
If you like veggies, we recommend: asparagus, artichokes, potatoes, olives, mushrooms and sweet veggies (pumpkins, cauliflowers, parsnips..).
