Brumale Truffles are frequently used to try and defraud the unwary, but at the right price they can be a fine addition to dishes in the kitchen in their own right.

Season

Brumale Truffles (Tuber brumale), which are harvested between November 1 and March 15 on similar sites as the Black Périgord Truffle, looks like the Black Perigord Truffle but without the complex aroma and flavor.

Varieties

One variety, the Musk Brumale, smells of turnip nuanced with garlic and tastes very peppery and characteristically turnip-like. It sells for half the price of the Périgord truffle. Our suggestion: Save your money and wait for a fresh Périgord truffle. Don’t buy Rump Roast when you want to know what Wagyu tastes like.
