This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in August of 2019. With a complex and varied flavor profile, truffles are among the rarest and most exquisite ingredients in the world. They can't easily be farmed, like most crops, and must instead be found and harvested by hand from the roots of certain types of tree. One popular way to add their unique taste to many dishes is by adding a tablespoon of infused butter right before your meal is ready to serve.

Editor's Notes

August 13, 2019:

There's more than one way to get the classic flavor of truffle into your food, even if you don't want to pay a significant amount for fresh ones. Truffle salt is one of my favorites, particularly because it's easy to use small amounts, which tends to be good for most cooks. Truffle oil is extremely potent and easy to overuse, but some people like a really forward truffle flavor, so it's popular. Truffle Honey is a another very good option, as its sweetness blends well the fungus's complex flavor.

Gourmet Ghee starts off with super-high-quality clarified butter and adds powerful natural ingredients, and it's certified to be lactose free, so it's a great choice for a lot of people who otherwise can't even eat butter. Truffles USA makes a great product that says right there on the label that there are no mysterious "natural flavorings" in it, just butter and truffle. It does, however, have a relatively low fungus content, so it may not be quite as flavorful as others. Urbani is one of the most popular brands and many users claim it's the best, however, the Terroirs d'Antan uses a multi-faceted approach to infusing the butter with 4 different methods of adding truffle flavor, which means it likely has the closest overall profile to the real thing. It's expensive, but it also comes in a restaurant-style tube and may be the perfect thing to dollop on top of a medium-rare steak.
