COOKING WITH CHEF JOHN HOWIE: AHI TRUFFLE POKE

Chef John Howie“It’s sort of like a poke, and a little bit like a tartare,” says Chef John Howie about this Hawaii-inspired raw fish salad, elevated to a high place of intense sensual flavor with the inclusion of fresh black truffles.

If you get your hands on some black truffles – and at $600-$800 a pound, they don’t come cheap — this is a rather exotic way to use a few shavings from this precious mushroom. (And yes, you can buy just one mushroom and keep it in the freezer for several future uses. The aroma is strong, and a single black truffle mushroom can go a long way.)
