truffle & our friends™ preserved truffles 99%

truffle & our friends™ preserved truffles 99% allows you to indulge in European truffles at any time of year. As Mother Nature only creates these treasures seasonally, you were formerly limited solely to truffle infused products whilst your cravings for the freshly foraged gems pressed on throughout the year when they were out of season. Though there is nothing wrong with using infused products, we even encourage you to do so; it is just not the same as the exquisite liking of a fresh truffle.
With the preserved truffles 99%, your cravings can be met anytime you like and to the extent ever so close to the experience of indulging in a fresh truffle. With this unique technique, you can have dehydrated natural truffles that have maintained 99% of their flavour properties at hand in your cupboard year-round.

truffle & our friends™ preserved truffles 99% are produced through a highly innovative and unique method,
in which the fresh truffle is freeze-dried in a vacuum cabinet. This extrudes the water the truffle contains,
while still preserving 99% of its flavour and most of its aromas. The process is solely technical and without
chemicals, which leave us with the same 100% natural product as from the start, only dehydrated to a fifth
of its actual size.

black truffle sea snowflakes – 6% black truffle HAVSNØ™ sea salt

truffle & our friends™ black truffle sea snowflakes is a pure handcrafted Norwegian flake salt layered with hand-picked shaved black truffle. Entirely without preservatives, additives and colouring. Pure, delicate flakes with a soft saltiness and crunchy, yet crisp texture, perfectly married with the warm and earthy, full-bodied taste from the black truffle.

To produce a truffle salt that we could be proud of, it was imperative to find an exceptional salt. It may sound quite obvious, but there are several parameters to take into consideration, as well as a preferred style for your end product. On the top of our wish list, we knew that the right kind of salt would be soft, crisp and clean and that it could harmonise with the warm fragrance of black truffle, into a unified product, as opposed to two elements competing for the leading role. With a lot of testing from various geographical areas, different qualities and even more styles and varieties, we are so very fortunate to have the possibility to cooperate with North Sea Salt Works and their outstanding HAVSNØ™. It was love at first taste.
When you open a glass jar with truffle & our friends black truffle sea snowflakes, a pungent deep musky and earthy black truffle are the first scents that hit your nose, followed by a tiny bit of fried garlic and damp forest soil. In the mouth, you instantly feel the mineral content of the cold and clean seawater that makes HAVSNØ crystalline white flakes flat and soft with a light crunchy feeling. Once you fall through the saltiness and minerals, you discover the build-up of the earthy full-bodied black truffle marrying into the ideal balance of two of Mother Earth’s most significant elements, the land and the sea.

white truffle risotto – “a trinity of kings” – organic Carnaroli rice white truffle & porcini

Maybe not in that order, but the primary key is quality. truffle & our friends™ white truffle risotto – “a trinity of kings”, is an elegant risotto base with the most exquisite seasoning.
It consists of high-quality organic Carnaroli rice, prepared for you with delicious white truffles and porcini mushrooms. Make a main for one or two friends and yourself, or as a starter or side for four. Suitable for all friends, regardless if they are vegan or meat-lovers.
What is it that makes a good risotto? The grain type, its quality, the seasoning, the broth (or no broth), the wine, the cooking time and temperatures, the stirring technique and the quality of the cheese.

The Carnaroli rice is often considered the king of Italian rice and it´s kernels are the longest and thickest of the superfino rice. The Carnaroli’s long oval grain holds the highest concentration of starch, which helps keep its shape during the slow cooking, obtaining the most excellent texture for perfect velvety risotto. Concerning the thickness of the rice, it stays al dente even after cooking. Accordingly, it is the preferred choice when making risotto as the rice the star. The porcini mushroom (Boletus edulis) is also known as ”King Bolete”; hence we reckoned it to be the most suitable mushroom to pair with the white truffle that truly is the king of truffles (Tuber magnatum pico) and the king of rice (Carnaroli) – a trinity of kings.
When appropriately prepared you will have an incredibly elegant risotto. Exquisite warm, medium-bodied aromas of earthy truffle and nutty tones from the porcini with a perfect texture and bite.
