Truffle Butter: affordable and versatile for truffle-loving home cooks

Truffle Butter is a fabulous and easy way to get acquainted with the exotic world of truffles whether you opt for white truffle butter or a black truffle variety. If obtaining fresh truffles is outside your budget, using truffle butter is great way of enjoying the rich, earthy truffle flavor in a way more affordable and accessible for the home cook. The potent fragrance of truffles permeates the butter, which will in turn permeate whatever dish it is used for.

Truffle butter can be used instead of butter in almost any savory dish, and is particularly tasty when melted into eggs, polenta, pasta, and risotto. Alternatively, you can simply melt  a spoonful of truffle butter on freshly seared meat just before  serving or roast a chicken with the truffle butter spread under  the skin.
In case you’d like some more inspiration for making the most of your truffle butter, we have compiled a list of some of the most popular dishes which are very much enhanced by the addition of truffle butter.
