Truffle Cheese 101

A truffle is a subterranean mushroom that can be found in the underground root systems of chestnut, oak, hazel, and beech trees. Truffles characteristically have an "umami" taste (earthy, meaty, and savory), so they are a natural pairing for cheese which also has its umami characteristics.  

Ground truffles or truffle oil are often mixed into the curds before the cheese is pressed into forms. Otherwise, truffle oil can be rubbed onto the exterior of the cheese during the formation of its rind or after the cheese has matured and developed its own flavors. These different ways of incorporating truffle into cheese contribute a distinct flavor profile to the final cheese you enjoy.
