How to cook with truffle
Truffle is powerful and rich, and can dominate other flavours in a dish if not used thoughtfully. In order to make the most of its bold aroma and flavour, truffle is often most effectively deployed on simple dishes. Try pairing it with a simple starch like pasta or polenta for maximum impact. Drizzle truffle oil over carbonara, or stir it through creamy mashed potatoes. For something different, try whipping up a truffle pesto sauce. Fresh green herbs and citrus provide a bright counterpoint to truffle’s heavy and distinct flavour, while parmesan and garlic blend well with its funky savoury notes.
