Once you select your firm truffle and appreciate its perfume, start to plan your menu. There is no need to think you have to be a chef to be able to serve Truffles, the more uncomplicated the preparation, the clearer you’ll taste them. In fact one of the best ways to enjoy black or white truffles is shaved on top of buttery scrambled eggs.
Here is my favorite way to savor the white truffle.
1 lb Fresh Pasta –Tagliatelle or Fettuccine fine
1 stick butter
¼ cup cream
freshly cracked pepper
1 ounce white truffle
Cook Pasta in boiling salted water. Fresh pasta cooks quicker than dry so watch the pot. It should cook in 4-5 minutes.
While pasta is cooking melt butter. Add Cream and season with salt and pepper. Heat until little bubbles appear around edges. Turn off heat.
Drain pasta and quickly add the pasta to the butter and cream mixture and toss.
Plate the pasta.
Generously shave truffles thinly blanketing the top of each serving.
