Product Description

TUBER MAGNATUM PICO

Cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil with low acidity, highly refined and with a light taste. The selection of authentic Greek precious white truffle and the long wait of many days for the oil to be scented give Foodcross’ White Truffle Olive Oil a unique, strong and lingering aroma, and an intense and pleasant flavour. It contains no colorants, artificial flavouring or preservatives.

Truffle is one of the few foods that are sought after in all their forms. It is a rather sensitive product and grows exclusively in unpolluted soil. Its production is entirely natural and it is harvested by expert hunters

Tuber Magnatum Pico is the most sought after and rare subterranean mushroom; the most expensive of all truffles. It ranks equal to the food categories of saffron and caviar.

It is harvested in autumn, from September to December, several centimetres below the surface of the ground, and is mainly found growing on the root systems of trees such as oak, hazel, poplar and beech.

Its size can reach up to 12cm in diameter, although it is usually much smaller. Its outer surface is beige or light brown in colour, with white streaks on the inside, and it has an irregular shape.

Its unique and distinct flavour begins with a strong aromatic scent, redolent of a mixture of garlic and cheese, and ends with a lingering and delicate taste.

Once a dish is prepared, it only takes a few drops to perfectly scent meat, risotto, salads, pastas, potatoes and eggs.
