Buying Truffles Online

Looking for the perfect gourmet ingredient? Try buying truffles online!

Buying truffles online allows you to enjoy the rarest, most flavorful truffles at any time of the year, without undue hassle or expense. Truffles are prized around the world for their pungently rich flavor and aroma. These heavenly diamonds of the culinary world impart an intoxicatingly delicious flavor to cuisine, whether you use fresh truffles or indulge in the gourmet condiments of truffle oil, truffle butter, truffle juice, or sauce. Finding quality truffles in neighborhood stores can be difficult, especially in smaller towns or areas without a gourmet shopping district. Discerning epicureans are discovering that buying truffles online is the most reliable way to obtain delicious preserved and fresh truffles to use in their recipes.

Truffles are the fruiting body of subterranean fungi. They grow near the root systems of certain oak, chestnut, beech, and hazel trees, approximately two and fifteen inches underground. Truffles are extremely difficult to find, as they cannot be seen from above ground. Truffle hunters employ trained pigs or dogs who can identify the delicate aroma of growing truffles, a scent that is undetectable by human noses. Truffles have a notoriously short growing season and demand for this superlative tuber exceeds supply by a wide margin, which contributes to truffles’ mystique and high cost.

One of the difficulties that many epicures face is trying to figure out where to buy truffles. Cooking with truffles has become increasingly popular, because these fragrant fungi can turn even the most homely dish into a gourmet feast. In many areas across the country, finding a reliable source for truffles can be next to impossible. This is particularly true in the case of fresh truffles, which need to be handled correctly to preserve their earthy taste and aroma without degradation.

Buying truffles online from a reputable company such as House of Caviar and Fine Food ensures you can find the most prized, elusive varieties of truffles to flavor your dishes. You can choose Black Truffles or White Truffles, which are both available in Winter and Summer varieties. Winter Black Truffles, also known as Black Diamond or Perigord Truffles, are the most flavorful truffles with a robust aroma and flavor. Summer Black Truffle, which are actually a separate variety of fungi, offer a subtler fragrance and more delicate taste Winter and Summer White Truffles are just harvested in different seasons.

Purchasing truffles online opens a world of flavorful possibilities. Instead of being restricted to a single choice like you find in a brick and mortar store, when you buy truffles online you can find this gourmet ingredient a variety of ways: fresh, frozen, preserved in jars or tins, and in gourmet specialty truffle condiments.
