Truffles are known worldwide for their exceptional taste and extremely intense and specific scent. With extremely high nutritional values, the world’s gastronomes cannot agree on whether this mushroom is spice or food, but many certainly agree on its aphrodisiac qualities. This mysterious mushroom is rare and has a specific flavor which can easily transfer to any food.
Truffles are found underneath the earth, at a depth of 5-50 centimeters, by well-trained dogs, wild boars and even bears. In Serbia, Labradors or Lagoto romagnoli are most often used to discover the natural habitat of truffles.
They have been used in nutrition since the ancient times, in Ancient Egypt, Classical Greece and Imperial Rome and according to the legend truffles were considered ‘the food of the Gods’ invisible for humans. They have become widespread in the 19th century Serbia during the rule of King Milan Obrenovic, when they were widely served on the court menu.
Since 1991, around 200 truffle sites were discovered in Serbia among which are 13 types of truffles, including the most famous and expensive white truffle. These luxurious mushrooms are found along the Sava or Mlava River and their nutritional qualities are equal to those of the Alba white truffles.
