It is an hypogean fungus (so it lives underground) that grows in symbiosis with some plants (oak, poplar, willow, linden and others) in particular conditions.
Tuber Magnatum Pico is not cultivable and the availability changes very often, according to climate conditions.
Tuber magnatum (or “old gentlemen relish”) or precious white truffle grows spontaneously in some areas in Piedmont (Langhe and Monferrato), in Lombardy and in some regions of central Italy. It is picked thanks to the help of trained dogs which can recognize the perfume underground. The gathering season is from October through December.
How to store it
Keep it in the fridge (2/4° C), wrapped up in a cloth or in blotting paper and closed in a container (paper should be changed every 2 days). A fresh truffle may be kept for about a week this way, but obviously the sooner the better.
How to clean it
The fresh white truffle must be brushed with cold water to rinse off any trace of mud. Then dry it carefully and let it rest for ten minutes before serving.
How to serve it
You need a proper "truffle-cutter" to slice it as thin as you can (you may need to fine tune the blade). The thinner the tastier!
