Truffle oil is made with extra virgin olive oil and fresh black truffle shavings. The truffle infuses its natural flavour creating an earthy and rich flavour that pairs well with a variety of foods. Truffle oil is used as finishing oil, drizzled over a dish at the end of the preparation. Truffle oil should not be used for cooking as the flavour will dissipate with heat.
Pasta and Rice
This is one of the best uses of truffle oil. Pasta and rice are mild and take on the full flavour of the truffle. A simple drizzle over pasta tossed with fresh parsley and Parmigiana Reggiano cheese creates the perfect meal. Mushroom risotto drizzled with truffle oil enhances the flavor of the mushrooms
A simple potato pizza or one made with mushrooms and mozzarella is just craving a drizzle of truffle oil.
The humble potato will take on any flavour that it’s offered. Black truffle oil is that perfect match. A light drizzle over french fries, roasted potatoes, or creamy mashed will not disappoint.
Truffles and eggs are perfect together. Whether you are adding a drizzle to simple scrambled eggs or to an elegant omelet, your taste buds will thank you.
Adding a teaspoon of black truffle olive oil and lemon juice is the perfect dressing for many salads, especially warm winter’s salads with sautéed mushrooms, roasted squash, quinoa, and farro.
