White Truffle Gift Set
Give the gift of one of Nature’s greatest treasures: a white truffle nestled in a gift box and complete with a humidor for proper storage and a shaver to get perfectly thin slices. White truffles are only available for a short time in early winter. Ours are meticulously hand-collected in Italy, ensuring high quality and freshness. Tuber magnatum pico, also known as the Alba truffle, is prized for its distinct aroma and intense, earthy flavor. There is no comparable experience to the pungent aroma and flavor of the white truffle, and no more reliable source than D’Artagnan’s scrupulous buyers.

Please note: Because truffles are natural products foraged in the earth, quality and flavor will vary. We select truffles with great care based on visual and olfactory inspection, but cannot taste each truffle. Please see the cooking and serving tab for tips on proper truffle storage.
Storing/Serving Tips: Once a fresh truffle is out of the ground, it doesn't keep long. To best preserve your truffle, wrap it in a paper towel, put in an airtight plastic container and set in the refrigerator. Do not clean the truffle until you are ready to use it.
To clean it, gently remove any dirt that remains with a soft brush, then use the tip of a paring knife to loosen any pockets of dirt in the crevices, then lightly brush again.
White truffles are prized for their distinct aroma and intense, earthy flavor. They are only served fresh: sliced, shaved or grated over a finished dish such as pasta, risotto, vegetables, or eggs. The heat of the cooked dish is just enough to release the aroma of the truffles, enhancing their natural pungency.
From charcuterie gift boxes packed with bold flavors, to our signature recipe kits - including the classic cassoulet - our gifts and samplers are carefully curated to make gift giving easy and enjoyable. Offering a taste of D'Artagnan, they not only make wonderful gifts for food lovers, but are also the perfect way for you to experience a variety of our quality products at home.
