Truffle oil

Anybody know a good brand of and a good place to get truffle oil from locally (i.e. the NC Triangle area, specifically, Chapel Hill/Durham if possible)?

How's A Southern Season's selection? Trader Joe's perhaps?

  1. can't think of any specific brands but Whole Foods is definitely a good source.

    If Southern Season is convenient for you - then I'd suggest talking to one of their fairly knowledgeable staff on a brand that they recommend.

    I picked up a small bottle at the Harris Teeter about a month ago - it wasn't "the best" but it was adequate.

    1. I'm thinking Southern Season is your best bet.

        Thanks, y'all; I figured either Southern Season (I almost keep typing in Southern States... which I'm pretty sure doesn't carry truffle oil!) or Whole Foods would carry it. Glad to hear HT's was at least usable, as I didn't think a "regular" grocery store would even carry it.

        Thanks again!

          I was just at Trader Joes and gave a quick look there for you, but they didn't have the stuff.
