Truffles are one of the world’s delicacies and shrouded in mystery – they’re celebrated for their flavor and for their rarity because they can’t easily be cultivated – but there are many misconceptions about truffle hunting and truffles themselves. Alba, for instance, has become synonymous with its Tartufo Bianco d’Alba but Matteo will tell you truffles grow more predominantly in central Italy and are largely hunted in Umbria and Lazio rather than Piemonte. Truffles come in many varieties and are available year-round – so you can join Matteo in the woods during every season.
