Dehydrated Black Truffles
Why was this product created ?
Enjoy to cook all year long authentic black truffles without breaking the bank !
Our dried black truffles are made from finely sliced, 100% Italian fresh truffles (a variety called Tuber aestivum Vitt. or summer truffle). Dehydrated, they fully retain their flavour and fragrant aromas. Soak them for 5 minutes in water, milk, cream or broth to enjoy just like fresh truffles. Since fresh truffles are very hard to find (and only in season), dried truffles are a way to add a luxurious touch to your dishes year round.
Truffles are rare, hard to find and hard to cultivate. They grow underground, at the foot of trees such as oak and hazelnut trees, both common in Italy’s Piedmont region. Since they are not visible from the surface, sniffer dogs or pigs are used to locate them. Furthermore, there is no way of knowing if a truffle is mature until it is dug out.
Located in the high hills of Roccascalegna in Italy which enjoy a mild and temperate climate throughout the year, the recipes are made from raw materials having benefited from the best conditions to develop.

Dried Italian black truffles, in flakes.
The artisanal business Casina Rossa (red house in Italian) has been based in the Abruzzo mountains for two generations. The cooks prepare typically Italian specialties following their grandmothers’ methods, such as simmering tomato sauces over low heat. The company focuses on using the best local products and superior quality ingredients. The artisans’ talent and know-how are the reason Favuzzi chose them to make its branded tomato sauces and truffle olive oil.
