So, what is trufa negra?

Trufa negra, also known as black truffle, is a highly sought-after ingredient in the culinary world. It is a type of fungus that grows underground and has a distinctively pungent and earthy flavor, with notes of nuttiness and musk. Trufa negra is primarily found in the winter months and is harvested using trained dogs or pigs that sniff out the truffles' distinctive aroma. Due to its intense flavor and rarity, trufa negra is often used sparingly and can be quite expensive. It is a popular ingredient in haute cuisine and is often shaved or grated over dishes like pasta, risotto, or eggs to add a luxurious touch.
