Harrods brings in-season white truffle menu to Tartufi & Friends this October.

Entirely dedicated to the world of the truffle, this in-store eatery will be serving exquisite dishes made with white truffle from mid-October.

Choices include Burrata with truffle honey, homemade tagliolini pasta with fresh white truffles and fresh smoked salmon sliced sashimi style, white truffle salt and fresh truffle. There is even a range of truffle-infused cocktails.

Growing symbiotically with oak, hazel, poplar and beech and fruiting in autumn, they can reach 12 cm diameter and 500g, though are usually much smaller. These delicate morsels are pale cream or brown with white marbling. Italian white truffles are very highly esteemed and are the most valuable on the market, easily fetching £500 per 100g.
