All-

Looking for a good truffle oil or salt to use during holiday cooking, more as a finishing touch. What are your favorites salts or oils available in NYC and do you prefer salt OR oil?

Thanks!

      i don't mean to rain on your parade, but did you know that the vast majority (possibly all) of truffle oil is totally synthetic; i didn't. it's like spraying pledge on your food.

        Dean and Deluca has decent truffle salt-selezione tartufi-$30 for 3.5 oz but last me all year. Love to have it on my egg whites in the morning.
