One of the most well known features of Tetsuya’s is the Truffle Butter served at the beginning of the degustation. By popular demand, Tetsuya developed his Black Truffle Salsa (For Butter) with one of the most reputable Italian truffle companies, for guests to recreate the butter at home – you can try either of the two recipes below. Tetsuya’s Black Truffle Salsa can also be tossed through pasta, or a teaspoon stirred into scrambled eggs for a decadent breakfast.
