Have you tried truffle oil yet? It is a product which is growing in popularity for us. Most customers that we meet at events ask for ideas on how to use it in their cooking, so we thought we would give you a list of our favourites. Once you have tried some of these we are sure you will always keep a bottle of this in your store cupboard.

Make Truffle Oil Vinaigrette
Add a teaspoon of truffle oil to rapeseed oil, lemon juice (or vinegar), salt, pepper and mustard (preferably dijon).

Add to Salads and Antipasti
Drizzle over salads and enjoy with hard cheese and cured meats.

Add to the Everyday
Drizzle truffle oil over potatoes, pasta, polenta or risotto. The mild flavoured starchy base of potatoes, pasta polenta and risotto is a perfect match for the flavour of truffle oil.

Pizza with Truffle Oil
Drizzle truffle oil over pizza and enjoy with the pizza crust.

Eggs
Drizzled over scrambled eggs or a decedent cheese omelette. Eggs and truffle oil are a perfect combination that we urge you to try!

Add to Vegetables
Some great flavour combinations include asparagus, cauliflower, sweetcorn, mushrooms, sweet potato and butternut squash.

Beef Carpacio
Delicious drizzled with truffle oil

Mushrooms
Truffle oil and mushrooms are a great combination. Add to mushroom risotto and mushroom soup.

Add to Lamb
Drizzle over roast lamb to add a great flavour.

Meats and Fish
Truffle oil will complement many types of fish, red meat and chicken. Rabbit is another meat that truffle oil works well with.

Popcorn and Chips
After they have been cooked toss popcorn, or chips in truffle oil for a delicious flavour. Finish the chips of with a light sprinkle of parmesan.
