Italian black truffle bruschetta with herbs and oil on grilled or toasted crusty ciabatta bread

Winter brings in a very special offering for Oregon mushroom hunters and lovers of all things earthy. These small potato-like fungi grow underground and range in size from golf balls to small nuts, though some are larger. Oregon Black Truffles (Leucangia carthusiana) offer a distinctive, yet complex aroma. Ripe truffles should smell musty, earthy, even pungent. It’s difficult to fully explain the experience of eating truffles, which is incomparable to anything else. In fact, some say that truffles are the culinary equivalent of sex. When fully mature, the beguiling odor is simultaneously primal and sublime, earthy and fascinating.

Ask our cheesemonger for pairing suggestions and about how to properly care for your truffles before use.
