Fresh black summer truffles pair well with dishes featuring potatoes, pasta, cheese, and eggs. They're particularly good on risotto and pizza.
Unlike winter truffles, which many modern chefs feel should not be cooked, black summer truffles have a stronger flavor and aroma if they’re very lightly cooked (sautéed or warmed in oil) just prior to use.
We recommend using a truffle slicer when cooking with fresh truffles, as the thin shavings it produces will maximize the amount of flavor you get from each truffle.
We usually recommend a serving size of 5-7 grams of fresh truffle per dish per person (approx. 4-5 servings per ounce).
