Recipes with black truffle
Black truffle is an essential ingredient in many recipes for appetizers, first and second courses according to a typical Italian menu. Nevertheless many people remain in doubt when they have to choose it because they do not know how to clean and cook truffle or consider it to be expensive or have never had a close encounter with this fantastic food. Besides, quite simply, they do not know its flavor. This page is the collection of traditional recipes that I had learned to do since, teenager, I helped my mother in cooking but there are also new ideas. I want to reassure immediately all you if doubters. Truffle is good, it enriches most dishes greatly and you do not need a lot to make a good impression!
How to use black truffle
The first time my mother and I had black truffle in our hands we did not know where to start. At the time there was no Internet that solves all the problems and fashionable cookbooks spoke little or nothing about it. Luckily, a seeker explained to us what to do in a few words. In the recipe for truffle sauce I explain everything, do not worry! Over time I learned to appreciate it more and more. Delicious with pasta, black truffles is amazing with eggs, meat, shellfish, crustaceans ... and even with chocolate ;) Strange, isn't it? it is a must as almost all the recipes on this page.
