Where do summer truffles come from?
Burgundy truffles can be found all across Europe, France, Italy, Spain and more. These truffles specifically come from Serbia which over the last ten years has becoming a leading example for high quality truffles. Most truffles from Serbia are actually exported to the likes of France and Italy and reexported as French or Italian origin.
I've had truffle oil before but this was the first time I've used the truffle itself. Price was good so I decided to try it. The first time I used it on scrambled eggs as was suggested. It was OK but didn't have much of a taste. Tried it on pasta along with truffle oil and it tasted much better. The third and final time I mixed some eggs and let it sit with the grated truffle for a few hours (in the fridge). Came out a bit better than the first time but it, to me, wasn't worth the price. This is an individual preference not a problem with SloFoodGroup, who's deliver was fine. I'd order from them again.
