I saw you make truffled mashed potatoes the other day and wondered what the difference in taste is between white and black...which is more "truffley?"

Ina's Answer:

Black truffles tend to come from the South of France, while white truffles tend to come from Italy. Black truffles have a much more subtle flavor, but I prefer the strong pungent flavor of white truffles. I actually only use truffle butter, which has actual truffles in it- because truffle oil can vary enormously in terms of truffle content.
