Truffles are a genus of mushrooms,underground fungi that often grow among the roots of trees such as oaks, poplars and willows. These plants also determine the color, smell, and taste of the truffle. The shape of the truffle is determined by the soil type; in soft soil, the truffles are often round and smooth, while in hard, clay-like soil, the truffle is a bit more 'choppy'. But the climate also plays an important role. In short, nature largely determines the quality of truffles. Truffles are found by searching for them with specially trained dogs. When and how truffles can be searched for, strict rules are laid down. The best-known types of truffles are the white truffle and the black truffle. But there are also the black summer truffle, bianchetto truffle, moscato truffle and unicinato truffle.
