What is black truffle?

Though you may have heard of this delicacy, you probably haven’t yet had the pleasure of tasting it! Black truffle is a species of fungus that is native to Southern Europe and grow beneath loose soil, usually near the roots of trees. So what does it taste like? Truffles have a deep aroma and strong fragrance that are a prelude to their taste. Earthy and musky; their flavor is savory, an almost buttery/garlicky/mushroom fragrance that’s totally unique. Because of their versatility and uniqueness, truffles can amplify the flavors of dishes they’re paired with – which is exactly what Chef Ryan Pearson has in store.
