The black summer truffle has a flesh which ranges from yellowish to greyish with white veins.  Although less strongly flavoured than the black winter truffles, these truffles are regarded as a fine dish ingredient by many foodies.  Since the summer truffle has a delicate flavour, it shouldn’t be used in dishes that are cooked.  Like good extra-virgin olive oil, the heat will destroy the flavour.  

Chef’s Tip: Shave thin slices of the truffle onto dishes to finish them off with a great aroma and taste.
