How to Shave Truffles | How to Slice Truffles | How to Cut Truffles

Shaving truffles is the most common method cutting them and adding them to a dish. Gourmet chefs and restaurants typically use hand-held truffle shavers. This makes it easy to place your finished dish in front of the customer and then shave the truffles on top. This is done much like when your server asks you if you'd like cracked pepper or Parmesan cheese (obviously with an added cost). Truffle shavers can typically shave or slice truffles paper thin, we're talking less than half of a millimeter. 

TIPS

  • If you do not have a truffle shaver, you can use a mandoline or vegetable slicer, a vegetable peeler, or even make thin slices with a knife.
  • Thinner shavings are typically preferred as using the same amount of truffle will be spread throughout the dish more evenly.
  • Try using a microplane grater to add small fine pieces of truffle to a dish.
