About this title


Truffles have long reigned as the gold standard of edible fungi, the supreme culinary delicacy. Written by the world?s largest truffle importer and a veteran chef, this new book explains truffle mystique, history and varieties, and provides all the information needed to buy and prepare truffles and truffle products. This lavishly photographed cookbook/guide reveals how one of the world?s culinary luxuries can now grace any table, any time.

From the Inside Flap:

Bearing the rich musk and flavor of their underground origins, truffles have long reigned as one of the earth’s richest culinary treasures. Once a rare pleasure available to only a select few, now truffles are truly an affordable luxury everyone can experience. Both black and white truffles are enjoying a new popularity in the form of many practical, easy-to-obtain products: truffle butters, oils, cheeses, creams, purees, pastes, pastas, honey, and flour. With no sacrifice in taste, this new world of inexpensive yet heavenly products allows the home cook to spark even simple recipes with the same secret flavor punch professional chefs have been using for years. Truffles: Ultimate Luxury, Everyday Pleasure shows how simple it is to make truffles and truffle products a part of everyday cooking and dining, adding a touch of elegance to any meal.

With over 115 recipes, covering an incredible assortment of appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and side dishes of all sorts, including snacks, Truffles reveals the immense versatility of this celebrated cousin of the humble mushroom. With signature dishes from such star establishments as Restaurant Daniel, Cafe Boulud, Tru, No. 9 Park, Fleurs de Lys, Spiaggia, Felidia, and others, Truffles offers the best in restaurant fare as well as the latest in at-home cuisine. Entertain lavishly with the deliciously elegant Wild Mushroom Bisque with White Truffle Oil, Scallop-Truffle Napoleons with Creamed Leeks, or Raviolo with White Truffles and Golden Butter. Or for more relaxed dining, experience classic comfort food raised to an exalted level with Baked Penne with Truffle Cheese or with Mashed Potatoes with Mascarpone and Truffle Puree. A whole host of well-loved dishes enjoy added elegance with a simple truffles touch: Truffled Osso Bucco, Winter Squash Soup with Black Truffle, or Omelet with Black Truffles.

Also included are practical tips on buying and storing truffles, including insights on different types and grades, cleaning and cutting them, as well as expert wine recommendations for each dish. With a fascinating look at the colorful history of truffles and with beautiful photographs designed to inspire every cook, Truffles will show you how to make one of the world’s most treasured delicacies an inspiring and delicious addition to your everyday culinary repertoire.
