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.
