Tajarin al Tartufo

Expensive I know. Too expensive!

But if you get an opportunity to put your hands on one of these precious nuggets, here are few possible ways to enjoy it.

But first, if you must hold it a day or two before you eat it, put it in a glass jar with risotto rice (Arborio, Carnaroli, Vialone Nano…) or with some fresh eggs. The rice or the eggs will absorb the fantastic aroma and when you cook them, after having consumed the truffle, it will feel like eating truffle again.

White truffle, contrary to black truffle, is not supposed to be cooked with a dish but is thinly shaved, raw on top of it. Above are some of my favorite ways to enjoy it:

• Shaved over raw beef seasoned with extra virgin, sea salt and a raw egg yolk

• Shaved over fried or scrambled eggs

• Shaved over homemade tagliolini tossed in butter and Parmigiano
