V Whole Black Winter Truffles Extra Quality (replaces 1st Choice quality - not as good)
Postage (on its own) £3.50. (suitable for Vegetarians)
(Tuber Mélanosporum also known as Perigord truffle) from Provence. In a small jar. Supplied with suggested recipes. These are winter truffles. Summer truffles are MUCH cheaper, because they have little to no taste!
As with all the best ingredients, truffles are used in simple dishes. This brings out the full taste and aroma.
Generally, the way to get full benefit is to add the truffle to one of the ingredients and leave overnight in the fridge. Don’t forget to use the juice.
Please note that, once opened, your truffle is best used as quickly as possible. If you find that you can not use it all quickly, we recommend that you use it to flavour some olive oil for use at a later date.
Scrambled eggs, soufflé or omelette
Crack your eggs into a bowl about six hours before cooking and add very thin slices of truffle (or grate if you prefer). Use about 1.5 g per egg.
With pasta Grate over the pasta or, better, grate or slice into crème fraîche or olive oil, leave overnight in the fridge before mixing in to the freshly cooked pasta.
Sauce for steak, roast, chop etc In prepared cream (as above) mix into the cooking juices with a little salt and pepper.
Truffle butter for fish Mix with butter the night before (10g per 50g of butter).
These are just a few suggestions. There many uses for truffles. Add a few slices to your olive oil for use on salads etc. Add to soup.
