Risotto with truffle

Risotto with truffle and Chestnut mushrooms.
This recipe is with the real truffle which gives a completely different taste experience!
It will be a completely different taste experience with the real truffle compared to truffle oil!

Truffle is not the cheapest ingredient, but is so wonderfully good.
If you keep it straight you keep it for several days and you make several dishes.

Some tips on truffles:

  • Black truffle needs some heat to properly release the flavors.
  • Store it in an airtight glass wrapped in paper towels.
  • The paper is changed everyday, the truffle should not get damp.
  • Raw truffles do not taste as good as heated truffles.

In addition to truffle risotto maybe I can tempt with these truffle recipes:
