Do I need a truffle slicer?
The best truffle cut is the sliced one
That said, there are those who recommend the slicing method. You can probably find a truffle slicer (or truffle shaver) on the market that allows you to make a smooth cut. As with a ham, a truffle slicer is necessary to get a good cut.
What do you use to slice a truffle?
You’ll need a truffle shaver to properly shave your truffle over each dish. Don’t try to cut a truffle with a knife or grate it with a cheese grater or microplane. Only a truffle shaver will get you the super thin slices you want, and preserve the integrity of your truffle.
Can you use a mandolin to slice truffles?
You certainly can use a mandoline to thinly shave truffles, however, it won’t bring the same allure as a slicer. We offer two versions of a slicer, the only difference is the handle. Handwashing the slicers is recommended as to not dull or damage the blades.
