For the holiday season indulge in one of the most celebrated gastronomic pleasures on earth. In season for a very short period every year, the white truffle has a definitively unique bouquet that will delicately perfume and flavor everything it encounters. Often described as having a sweet garlic and cream soda aroma with a hint of sharp earth you can not go wrong shaving on top of scrambled eggs, risotto, gnocchi or pasta. Sourced from Northern Italy, Mikuni ships only the freshest and most aromatic white truffles and are indeed amongst the best in North America today.
"Presently, we were aware of an odor gradually coming towards us, something musky, fiery, savory, mysterious, -- a hot drowsy smell, that lulls the senses, and yet enflames them, -- the truffles were coming." William Makepeace Thackeray 1811-1863
