Truffle oil - what's it best with?

Hi everyone,

I've been experimenting with truffle oil recently and wanted to see if anyone could give me any tips. It's actually a little more pungent than I had remembered. What dishes do you find it goes best with?

  1. I drizzle a little bit over white pizza, or atop a mushroom ravioli with a wild mushroom pan sauce or tossed with fingerling potatoes which I then roast until crisp and browned...

    I am sure others will have even more inspired ideas!

    1. Does anyone know of a good source for top quality Truffle Oil?

      I looked at the Truffle oil at O&CO this week, it smelled wonderful. Has anyone used it?

      1. scrambled eggs, and also gnocchi.

        1. Any pasta, particularly risotto. Also drizzled on top of soups. Heaven.

          1. I like it in a bechamel sauce served with steamed califlower

              Try it with roasted cauliflower - amazing.

                  Separate cauliflower into even pieces - same size works best here. Roast on high heat stirring often till carmalized. Drizzle with a small amount of truffle oil. Once you have roasted cauliflower, there's no going back to steaming it.

                    The way you describe it, it sounds like you're sauteƩing this right?

                      No, roasting on high heat in the oven - about 400. Takes about half an hour.
