Truffles must be eaten FRESH, the sooner the better but within 10-12 days of harvest, to really experience them at their best. There is no comparison between fresh black truffle and preserved or frozen truffle and truffle oil is actually synthetically made, not the real thing at all.
Truffles are used in small amounts, usually shaved into or onto dishes The best way to use truffles is to infuse them as shavings or grated into cheese, butter, eggs, cream and sauces. Cooking with truffles generally only requires around 10 grams of truffle per person for a main course and less for an entree, making them a perfectly affordable delicacy.
