Freebase

  1. Truffle

    A truffle is the fruiting body of a subterranean Ascomycete fungus, predominantly one of the many species of the genus Tuber. Some of the species are highly prized as a food. French gourmand Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin called truffles "the diamonds of the kitchen". Edible truffles are held in high esteem in Middle Eastern, French, Spanish, Italian and Greek cooking, as well as in international haute cuisine. Truffles are ectomycorrhizal fungi and are therefore usually found in close association with the roots of trees. Spore dispersal is accomplished through fungivores, animals that eat fungi.

    truf′l, n. a globose underground edible fungus, used for its agreeable flavour in the preparation of many dishes.—adj. Truff′led, cooked with truffles. [O. Fr. truffle (Fr. truffe), prob. from L. tuber.]
