Summer Black Italian Truffle Butter

This creamy white spread peppered with truffle chunks is every bit as delicious as it looks. And so it should be, since its key ingredient is the truffle, a subterranean fungus that’s so difficult to harvest, international chefs bid for it at auctions. In fact, truffle plantation locations are often kept top secret. The summer black truffle (Tuber Aestivum) used in this product has a black-grey color, a woodsy scent, and the taste is an inimitable combination of wild mushroom, garlic and hazelnut.

Truffles have a symbiotic relationship with both the trees they grow upon and the animals they depend on for spreading their spores. It’s apt, then, that the ingredients in this product complement one another in a similarly harmonious fashion: the truffles add depth and flavor to the butter, while the fat of the butter encapsulates and preserves the richness of the truffle. The two work in tandem to create a sophisticated spread that every great chef should have in his or her kitchen.

There are countless ways you can use this Urbani truffle butter to enhance your cooking. Buy truffle butter, and melt it on seared steak, roast chicken or stir-fried vegetables to add extra depth and dimension, use it to thicken and enhance sauces, or dollop it onto bread, crackers or hors d’oeuvres for a delicious snack.
