Truffles Story
松露物語

What is Truffle 松露是什麼?

松露是一種生長在地下的真菌,它從某些類型的樹木的根系吸收養分。這種真菌的果實是塊莖的形式,由肉質塊組成,其顏色從白色到灰色趨於棕色(白松露),這取決於它生活和生長的植物。松露的形狀受其生長的土壤類型的影響。鬆軟的土壤會使松露的形狀更光滑,而緊實的土壤則會使松露的塊莖更難擴展,從而產生不規則塊狀的形狀。松露的形狀對它的味道和口感沒有影響。

The truffle is a fungus that grows underground, where it absorb nutrient from the root system of certain types of trees. The fruit of this fungus is in the form of a tuber and consists of a fleshy mass, whose colour varies from white to grey tending towards brown (White Truffle), depending on the plant on which it lives and grows. The shape of the truffle is influenced by the type of soil where it grows. A soft soil will produce truffles with a smoother shape while a compact soil, where the tuber has more difficulties to expand, will produce more irregular and lumpy shapes. The shape fo a truffle has no impact on its flavour and taste.

White Alba Truffle 阿爾巴白松露

按重量計算,阿爾巴白松露是世界上最昂貴的食物之一。雖然有人試圖種植它,但他們都沒有成功,這種罕見的松露仍然被發現野生,生長在橡樹,榛樹和椴樹的根部周圍。每年,阿爾巴松露的供應量都取決於季節開始前和狩獵季節期間的天氣。對於完美的松露季節,完美的天氣條件是必須的。市場必須忍受這一點,因為松露是天然野生的。直到今天,獲得這些受追捧的真菌的唯一方法是在意大利皮埃蒙特的山上放牧狗,在地面上嗅到珍貴的松露,通知它們的主人去挖掘。所以成為奢侈品之一。

By weight, the White Alba Truffle is one of the most expensive foods in the world. Although attempts have been made to cultivate it, they have all been unsuccessful and this rare truffle is still found wild, growing around the roots of oak, hazel and lime trees. Every year the availability of White Alba Truffles is dictated by the weather before the season start and during the hunting season as well. Perfect weather conditions are a must for perfect truffle season . The market just has to live with that, because truffles can’t be cultivated. Still today the only way to get these sought after fungus is to set dogs loose on the hills of the Italian Piedmont, sniffing the ground and showing the location to their owners to dig for previous truffles. That’s why truffles become one of the few luxuries.

How to Preserve Truffle 如何保存松露

建議收到松露後盡快享用以獲得最佳效果,保存不超過兩星期。並請按以下方式存放保鮮:

  • 不需清除松露表面的泥土,直接用吸水性能好的紙巾或布包裹松露,至少每天更換一次包裹材料。
  • 必須儲存在雪櫃內保鮮,溫度保存在大概37.5°F (3°C),擺放在開放間格內,讓松露可以呼吸。
  • 注意擺放位置,盡量遠離牛奶/牛油/芝士/雞蛋,避免松露的香氣被這些食品吸收。
  • 當發現松露開始變軟,表示松露已經到達最成熟的時間,需要馬上享用。
