Everything you ever wanted to know about truffles:
What are Truffles?
The word Truffle originates from a Latin term meaning “swelling” or “lump”.
Savoury truffles are subterranean fungi grown in calcareous soils near the roots of broadleaved trees such as oak or hazelnut. They tend to grow around the base of trees because of a unique relationship between fungus and the roots of vascular plants.
There are concentrated areas around the world that produce them, including France, Italy, New Zealand, China, North Africa, the Middle East, and the Pacific Northwest.
Are truffles the same as muchrooms?
Because of its spore-bearing body, the truffle is basically considered a form of mushroom. However, there are some important differences:
- Truffles grow underground while mushrooms typically grow above ground.
- Edible truffles don’t taste much like any traditional mushroom.
Most people, however, consider truffles to be a form of mushroom because both truffles and mushrooms are fungi with fruiting bodies.
Types of Truffles
There are many types of truffles in terms of species but the most popular for culinary purposes comes from the family genus Tuber.
The 18th-century French gastronome Brillat-Savarin called these truffles “the diamond of the kitchen”. Most of the Mediterranean cultures consider edible truffles to be of high value, excellent for cuisines. Of these countries, France and Italy, utilize the truffle in their cooking sequences. Two of the more popular types used are the white truffle and the black truffle.
