Salsa Tartufata is a tasty and sophisticated sauce based on a combination of truffles with herbs and oil, used to season various dishes. The truffles give the sauce an extraordinary flavor and aroma. Tartufata salsa is often used in pasta dishes with meat, rice, or vegetables, but it can also be used as a topping for different types of pizza or simply as a spread. Tartufata is based on a traditional recipe and is a unique specialty.

RECOMMENDED SERVING OF SALSA TARTUFATA
We recommend 15-20 g of Salsa Tartufata per person. It can be used cold as a spread on bread or toast or heated as an addition to a sauce. For beginners in the culinary world, it is ideal as it is effortless to use. Still, if you are an experienced and skilled cook, you can also use it to prepare more advanced dishes with the addition of cream, béchamel, butter, cheese, oil or mayonnaise.
WHAT ARE TRUFFLES
Truffles are precious mushrooms that grow underground and are difficult to find because they only grow in specific environments. They are one of the most expensive ingredients in gastronomy and are used to enhance the flavor of dishes. Black truffles are used for the Tartufata salsa because they are more affordable than white truffles, but their flavor is just as intense and unique. They are mainly found in Italy, France, Istria, and Spain under trees such as olive, apple, and cherry … Truffles can only be harvested by hand and with the help of trained dogs, which is one of the reasons why they are so valuable.
Truffles should be stored in the fridge, in paper bags with a wet celery leaf, or a dry container with rice, as they quickly lose their smell and taste at room temperature. Their flavor is very specific and intense, reminiscent of cream, butter, nuts, wood, and mushrooms. Black truffles are slightly spicy, so they also go well with inherently spicier dishes.
