It's the supermodel of the butter world
Bread and butter? Pfft. Slice, spread, done. A five-year-old can make that. That’s why bread and butter sits over by the door at all the fancy parties, for people who want to grab a bite as they’re being escorted out for not being cool enough. Take two, oh common man, as long as you take them to go.
Aux Délices des Bois Black and White Truffle Butter? THAT is the sort of condiment that makes a party. What? Don’t you get it? Well, have you ever cooked with truffle butter? No? Well, take heed at this juncture. Truffle butter has its rules. It has its demands, just like any superstar.
The black truffle butter is earthy with hints of chocolate. Throw it on while the food’s still hot, but after it’s been fully cooked. Maybe a rub on the skin of your turkey or a dollop on a just-finished steak. Maybe whip it into your potatoes or drop it onto scrambled eggs. Good for a sauce, or a soup, or just some kitchen experimentation, which is our 2nd favorite kind of experimentation.
The white truffle butter’s the other way around: it’s full and strong with pungent garlic-ful tastes. It’ll help pastas that are still scalding from the boil, or vegetables like asparagus and artichokes. Fresh fish, hearty risotto, even your simple bowl of green beans might take a punch from this flavor.
Aux Délices des Bois Black and White Truffle Butter isn’t the easy-to-use can’t-screw-it-up butter we’re all used to eating. But you know what? It doesn’t taste like normal butter either. You’ve got a violent shove of flavor going on here. It may be difficult to handle, but ultimately your food will be better for it.
