Black Truffle

The black truffle is considered a delicacy and this import from France starts to show up in autumn. The black truffle has an earthy-musty flavor and is best when it shaved on top of a dish before serving. The black truffle goes well with egg dishes, pasta dishes, and risotto. It is also an important ingredient in many classic sauces.
