Truffle butter
This Truffle butter recipe is most associated with French cuisine, where it plays a very large role, but it also appears in cuisine from other parts of Europe, especially Italy. The truffle imparts a rich, earthy, nutty flavour which complements a wide range of foods.
Truffle butter can be used to flavour many dishes such as risotto, or pasta dishes like agnolotti or ravioli. It can also be mixed with potatoes, to baste meat, and it's also a great way to dress up canapés too.
Black truffles such as summer or burgundy truffle (Aestivium/Uncinatum) or Périgord black truffle (Melanosporum) are highly recommended for this recipe.
