Di Vora grates some truffle on a dish in an Italian restaurant in central Budapest
Fausto Di Vora grates some truffle on a dish in an Italian restaurant in central Budapest August 8, 2014. Given their strong flavour and fragrance, a pungent blend of moist earth and spices, these rugged black fungi, generally the size of a walnut or an apple, are mainly used as a condiment in pasta, seafood or meat dishes, but also in some desserts. Even seasoned chefs, like Di Vora, who cooks at a smart Italian restaurant in central Budapest, have a hard time defining the precise flavour of truffles. "It changes all the time, depending on whether it is a black or a white truffle, but it also varies by season," said Di Vora, who uses about 30-40 kg of truffle a year, some from Hungary.

A truffle is seen on a table in Alba, north-western Italy November 11, 2013. Located in the heart of the Langhe - the hilly southern area of Italy's northwestern Piedmont region - Alba is the country's capital of white truffles, a variety of the prized fungus which grows underground. Truffles are found two to eight inches (5-20cm) below the ground near the roots of trees. They give off an odour which lasts for a limited period of time and can be detected with the assistance of well-trained dogs and experienced hunters. Output of white truffles, which are not cultivated and only grow naturally in forests, has fallen in Italy over the past few years, largely because climate change has brought a damaging mix of drought and torrential rains.

Bombana's distinctive flair for refined, regional Italian cuisine has taken him around the world and gained his Hong Kong restaurant three Michelin stars last year, within just two years of opening. After more than a year of soul-searching following the closing of the restaurant where he previously worked, Bombana opened "8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA" in Hong Kong's glitzy Central district.
