Fresh Black Summer Truffles have a mouthwatering sweetness, resembling hazelnut. Since the summer truffle has a more delicate flavor, it shouldn’t be used in dishes that are cooked. Like good extra-virgin olive oil, the heat will destroy the flavor. Instead, shave thin slices of the truffle onto dishes to finish them. A little goes a long way!
