It's often said that white truffles – known as the “white diamond" of the culinary world – are best paired with eggs for the simplest yet most decadent culinary creations. During white truffle season, fine-dining restaurants around the world will serve up dishes such as scrambled or baked eggs topped with generous shavings of white truffle.
Of course, there are also products like truffle oil or truffle-infused honey, available from high-end grocers all year-round. This allows home cooks to create similar truffle dishes from the comfort of their own kitchen, without needing to splash the cash on an entire truffle. One example of this is my recipe for a creme brûlée prepared with Tartufino Organic Acacia Honey with White Truffle, which adds a luxurious aromatic twist to a dessert that can be easily prepared at home using simple ingredients.
Ingredients1/2 cup whole milk1½ cups whipping cream6 egg yolks2 tbsp Tartufino Organic Acacia Honey with White Truffle (alternately, if you’d prefer something a bit less decadent, regular honey like Petrolo’s Acacia Honey works fine too!)4 tbsp of granulated sugar, plus another 4 tbsp for the topping
Note: You will also need a cook’s blowtorch for this recipe, available from any good kitchen supplies store.
