Truffles are a precious ingredient that thrive primarily in the fall and winter seasons. They should be consumed as soon as possible after their harvest. Therefore, it is important to buy them fresh, to know how long you can keep truffles fresh and if you can freeze them. Truffles can only be kept fresh for a few days, so it is best to store them in the refrigerator in an airtight jar or container. This preserves the aromatics of the truffle and the mushroom does not spoil as quickly.
You can also freeze truffles to keep them longer and thus preserve them for several weeks or months. However, the truffle loses some of its flavor and aroma when frozen. Therefore, the best method is to freeze the grated or chopped truffle in portions and thaw it just before using. Be inspired by the refined recipe ideas of our top chefs!

The search for the truffle is certainly one of the most fascinating aspects of the mushroom. It is an ancient tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Many myths and stories surround the search for the precious mushroom and the truffle hunter is a figure surrounded by mystery since its creation. The truffle hunters work every day and put great pride on collecting these pearls of gastronomy.
To become a truffle hunter, you must first go through the according training. In Italy for example, there is the "Accademia Italiana Tartufai" that offers official certification for truffle hunters. In addition, it is important to be familiar with the tools and techniques needed to search for the precious mushrooms. Training dogs that can help in the search is also an essential part of the preparation to become a truffle hunter.
The best truffle hunters know their forests, where they search for the precious truffles, to the smallest detail and find the precious mushrooms even in the dark. They know where the soil is particularly good, which plants provide the best shelter for the truffles and which secret places are best for the search. Traditional truffle hunters often wander around at night, searching for the precious mushrooms with their dogs.
