Black Winter Truffles
Just one whiff of the intense aroma that comes from truffles will have you salivating for the rich flavours sourced from this sought-after, foraged, edible, subterranean fungus – a rare delicacy.
Using the Actual Truffle
Black Winter truffles have a strong presence so MUST BE USED SPARINGLY to flavour foods. The truffles should be cleaned before use by brushing or wiping (NOT rinsing underwater). Truffles should be added as a finishing touch at the end of cooked preparations. Prolonged periods of heat will diminish the truffle’s flavor.
Adding Truffles to Foods
Add Truffles to cream-based sauces.
Fold Truffles into butter and spread over crusty bread sprinkled with salt.
Thinly slice or grate truffles over salads, pasta, risotto, soups, potatos and egg-based dishes.
Truffles, used very sparingly, add depth to pizzas, fries and roasts.
Stir into mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese and casseroles.
Truffles may also be simmered with sugar and added while making homemade ice cream.
Herbs – tarragon, basil, and parsley
Aromatics – garlic, shallots, and onions
Cheeses – goat, parmesan, fontina, chevre, and gouda
