This little tub on D’Artagnan black truffle butter cost $6.50 at Sawicki’s Meat Seafood & More in Decatur. I bought it to melt over some broiled salmon for dinner one night.
“Save some for the morning to put on your eggs,” Lynne Sawicki advised.
I don’t think she was quite envisioning this dish: leftover rice from Vietnamese takeout microwaved with an egg and a scoop of the butter. 90 seconds. Beep, beep. I love lazy cooking.
This butter (from the foie gras purveyor) is good stuff, and a little goes a long way. It really communicates that mild, musky, mushroomy flavor of black truffle.
