The Black Summer Truffle is the only truffle, which is available in fresh form during the summer. It is one of the most durable varieties and can last up to 2 weeks after gathering.
Bulgarian truffles are not very popular, because they did not become part of the traditional cuisine even though they grow in the whole country. Truffles were left out of our cuisine for many reasons. First of all, they grow hidden in the soil and were hard to be located.
The Spring White Truffle is a perfect alternative of the authentic white truffle, when the white truffle is out of season. The good news are that the Bianchetto Truffle is cheaper and at the same time has very similar flavour, but more intense.
Nowadays people try different ways to cultivate truffles, some of them are successful, other are not. The biggest drawback of cultivating is that the truffle loses part of its aroma and its taste. It loses its quality!
