So, what is tuber aestivum?

Tuber aestivum, also known as summer truffle, is a highly prized and aromatic culinary ingredient. It is a type of fungus that grows underground in symbiosis with the roots of certain trees, such as oak and hazelnut. Its exterior is smooth and black with small pyramidal warts, while its interior is marbled with white veins. With a delicate yet intense earthy flavor and musky aroma, tuber aestivum is commonly used as a luxury ingredient in fine dining and gourmet cuisine. It can be shaved or grated over pasta, risotto, eggs, meat, and vegetables, or infused in oils, butter, and sauces to elevate their taste and aroma.
