Provides a rubdown: the Alba truffle slicer UNS04 by Alessi. What could be better than refining your pasta with the spicy and rarely occurring mushroom. As is the case with many foods, fresh is best. The commercially available products such as truffle butter are thus only a bad compromise.
Alessi offers the perfect tool with its UNS04 Truffle Slicer. The Alba slicer lies well in the hand thanks to its curved shape.
The design is thanks to the Dutch architect Ben van Berkel. In 1998, he founded the architecture studio UNStudio together with Caroline Bos. In addition, Ben van Berkel teaches as a professor at the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt am Main. "The design of 'Alba' is inspired by the intertwining of tree roots with the tuber".
Material and size
The design truffle slicer is made of polished 18/10 stainless steel. The angle of inclination between handle and blade is 18 degrees, making truffle slicing a pleasant process by minimizing pressure on the wrist. Alba von Alessi is 20 cm long, 8.5 cm wide and 8 cm high.
It takes quite a lot of effort to find the noble mushroom. Pigs or dogs are trained to sniff the truffle with their fine nose. The truffle is one of the ascomycetes and can not be grown, which is why it is so expensive. There are black and white truffles, the latter should not be heated, but should only be rubbed raw over food.
