Truffles are technically a form of fungus, meaning that they commonly grow in the wild in a similar way to mushrooms, underground but in this case clinging to the roots of various trees. They can take many years to reach the point of fruition and are famously difficult to find and hence, can be rather pricey.
The Italian truffle season varies for the white or black versions, however the love affair that Sacla’ has with all things Italian has resulted in them travelling the length and breadth of Italy to bring you a Truly Madly Deeply Italian collection of these regional delicacies, in a variety of servings, sourced from like-minded artisanal suppliers.
Peter Morrell, Editor comments “I love the taste of truffles, the profound, earthy flavour lifts even the humblest dish to unimaginable heights. This range from Sacla’ is a delight, enabling foodies to create imaginative and inventive food at home.
“I have recently been using the Inaudi Black Truffle Flavoured Olive Oil and it’s superb. It would make the ideal Christmas gift for the aspiring chef in your life. The bottle is elegantly packaged to complement the quality of contents.
“Since using the Inaudi Black Truffle Flavoured Olive Oil I turned a basic Halloween pumpkin soup from a trick to a treat, elevated plain roast potatoes to a new level with a sprinkle of the oil and grated parmesan and transformed a seafood carbonara from a weekday standby to a Saturday night special. These truffle based gifts from Sacla’ will brighten our otherwise dull upcoming COVID Christmas.”
Sacla’ Truffle Pesto (90g RRP £2.50)
Black truffle is an Italian jewel hunted through the summer, identifiable by its pungent aroma. The earthy flavour is difficult to put into words.

Truffle Pesto also takes scrambled eggs to a whole new level. Try it and see.
