If truffles become too cheap to smile to the crisis

by Wednesday, October 30, 2013


Not every crisis has a silver lining, one might say, at least looking at the intriguing idea of Mauro Severini, President of the Comunità Montana Alta Valle del Tevere, among the organizers of the exhibition of white truffle of Città di Castello, which will start tomorrow. The truffle to the exhibition this year will be the crisis, accessible to all. In Short, low cost. In what sense? The answer is simple:

«The price of truffles varies according to size. Normally in the exhibitions are offered larger ones (by Hg up) and speaking of white truffles are on 130/150 EUR per 100 g. On this occasion the producers were asked to make even small sizes (type 10/15 grams) to be sold at lower prices (Massimo 50 EUR per 100 g). As there is no quality difference, the scent does quite the level of maturation, not the size».

In Short, smaller pieces for all budgets: a good idea if you think for a plate of tagliolini al tartufo few grate.

In addition to this, then, "with the summer train, will be proposed the summer black truffle about 30 euros per 100 g». But it's not over here. Because in Città di Castello the truffle scaccia-crisis will be even at the restaurant, where were identified the truffle menu to suit all budgets.
