Shaved Oregon white truffles

Oregon is lucky enough to be home to four of the world's seven edible species of truffles, and now is the height of truffle season, which runs January to March locally. Here are several Portland restaurants that will be slicing and infusing the rare culinary ingredient in their kitchens this weekend.

The four edible truffle species found in Oregon are the Oregon winter white truffle (Tuber oregonense), the Oregon spring white truffle (Tuber gibbosum), the Oregon black truffle (Leuca ngium carthusianum), and the Oregon brown truffle (Kalapuya brunnea). While they bear some resemblance to France's black Perigord truffles and Italy's famous white truffles, each has its own aromas and style, just like different grape varieties.

In addition to being shaved over a freshly plated dish, which is the way most people eat truffles around the globe, Oregon's truffles are particularly suited for infusing fatty products, like oil, butter, and cheese. That means that while nary a truffle may be in sight, its potent aromas should dominate the dish. Get 'em before they're gone.
