Burgundy Black Fall Truffles
France or Italy, depending on availability.
Fresh Burgundy fall truffles (Tuber Uncinatum) are a delicious truffle variety harvested in many different countries in Europe (“Burgundy” is the name of the variety, not necessarily the place of origin). They lend a gloriously intoxicating aroma and flavor to many of your favorite winter dishes.
When figuring out how many ounces of fresh European truffles to buy, we usually recommend a serving size of 5-7 grams of fresh truffle per dish per person (that's roughly 4-5 servings per ounce).
