Black Truffle Oil, La Truffiere Condimento aromatizzato al Tartufo Nero
Black truffle oil is Italian olive oil infused with rare black truffles. Use it as you would any upscale olive oil, but anticipate the lovely addition of the truffle bouquet. We also carry white truffle oil.
This is a luxurious flavored oil that high end foodies are sure to enjoy. It can be used in the same manner as any upscale olive oil. The truffle flavor is an added bonus.
The truffle is a tuber of unusual flavor and aroma savored in Italian and French cookery. The truffle has yet to be successfully cultivated and its scarcity commands a high price. Due to their short growing season and high demand, truffles can sell for up to $800 per pound.The truffles of Piedmont are especially prized for their exceptional flavors.
This oil is a lovely way to experience the flavor of fresh truffles without taking out a second mortgage. The black truffle oil is stronger than the white. It is very nice to add to marinades and vinegarettes. You can bring out a fuller truffle flavor in your dish by finishing with a drop or two of the oil. The oil pairs very nicely with any dish containing mushrooms, as the flavor of truffles and other mushrooms compliment each other. White truffle oil will get stronger if added to a dish before cooking, whereas, the black truffle oil is strong enough right away to add as you finish a dish.
