Truffle lends itself to pairing with eggs, creamy sauces on pasta and a number of cheeses.
This is wonderful because you can create something delectable with little effort and it it a good way of introducing family and friends to a new taste.
Here are a few ideas;
Make scrambled egg or omelette and shave or grate truffle over the top.
Cut a brie in half horizontally and add fine shavings of truffle to one half then replace the other half and let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Serve with crusty bread or crackers.
Put some quality olive oil in a shallow dish and grate truffle on top. Spoon over toasted ciabatta while the toast is still warm. Add a little salt and pepper and try this with a glass of good red wine.
Make a toasted cheese and truffle sandwich. Add some grated truffle to butter at room temperature. Use on good bread, baked potatoes, in potato mash.
Decorate a pizza with a rich creamy cheese such as brie or mozzarella and after it comes out of the oven, add truffle as thin shavings.
