Some Ideas on How to Get the Most from Your Fresh Truffles

Here are just a few simple recipe ideas and a little inspiration of how you could utilise just 30g of fresh truffle:

  • Fresh Truffle and Egg sleepover: leave some fresh truffle at least overnight in a sealed container with half a dozen fresh organic eggs. Your Eggs will magically absorb the aroma and will become Truffle Eggs. Outrageously good.
  • Fresh Truffle Cream: Snuggle up some grated fresh Truffle in a jug with 500ml of voluptuous cream and left to cuddle in the fridge, for a few hours minimum.
  • Fresh Truffle Cheese: Store your fresh truffles air-tight with Parmesan, Pecorino or Gruyere cheese. The longer you let them snuggle up, the stronger that relationship will be!
  • Fresh Truffle Chocolate: Infuse some fresh Truffle in a glass jar with 500g of the best dark chocolate pieces you can find. Then let your imagination run wild!
  • Make your own Fresh Truffle Oil: Slip some fresh Truffle into a good quality virgin Olive Oil; for sloshing, drizzling, dressings etc. In a puddle; glug together the Oil above, with a fine Balsamic Vinegar that has been harbouring a truffle-nugget for a few days; dunk your favourite crunchy bread and devour.
  • Soft Fresh Truffle Cheese: Finely slice the fresh truffle. Stab a soft, stinky Brie style cheese all over. Poke away with the slices, and then re-wrap and store for 48 hrs.
  • Fresh Truffle Honey: Let some sliced fresh truffle buzz around a good quality local honey while they chill out together in the fridge for a few days.
  • Fresh Truffle Rice: Crumble fresh truffle into good quality Risotto Rice, at least 24 hours before cooking.
  • Fresh Truffle Butter: Process fresh truffle into a paste / fine crumb, and then fold into 300g of quality unsalted butter, and whip it into an umami cloud (it’s fine to use a blender)!
  • Fresh Truffle Salt: Blitzed, crumbled, or grated into a good quality natural Salt. Store in the fridge.
  • Fresh Truffle Vodka: The luckiest one! Shave fresh truffle into a good quality vodka for an unending party! Not only will this blow your mind, but it preserves the truffle for about 3 months.
  • Fresh Truffle Pasta: Stirred into steaming, salty Spaghetti, with an obscene half pack of Butter (or even better, the truffle Butter above). Blanket with one of the Cheeses above. Divine.
