I know I saw a post somewhere that listed a couple of places in the Boston area that carried truffle butter. I'm hoping I can find a place that is open tomorrow Sunday) so I can coat and roast this beautiful filet with it. Thanks to all for reading & hopefully responding !!!

    You can also check the Butcher Shop. I use to buy the D'artagnan brand there and I liked it much better than the other brands I have tried over the years.

    I keep some in my freezer for a quick truffle pasta or eggs or risotto.

        Yes, but I haven't been there for some time so I would call first if you were making a special trip. Of course, South End Formaggio and Lionette's Market are both in the area and might have it anyway.

          Thanks....

          I did call buthchershop & they had it. Easier to drive to Boston from Salisbury than it is to find a parking spot!!!! They had their own blend, not D'artagnan. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems nice.

          $14.70 for 5.5 ounces....

      If you cant find it you can just whip truffle oil and butter together with a few truffle peelings for the speckled look if desired.

        I'll have to remember this tip..... I'm a newbie, and I'm trying to get my hands on this quickly as I can as I have to get the beef cooked and then served. However, I think I like this tip and now will have to research and explore the wonderful world of fresh truffles and truffle oil, which seems easier to get online (the oil). Thanks for the reply !

        Don't (saute) cook with it. It's really meant to be used as a condiment to be spread on food just after it's cooked. Great on toast!

          Molto Formaggio. Either location. Preston Royal or Highland Park Village.
          Also, Central Market.
