Truffle Oil – Profine Food Stores

Truffle oil from Profine Food Stores

Would you look at this: Your humble pal, sh1teater is moving up in the world.

Getting sent high quality exotic ingredients like this truffle oil from Profine Food Stores – well okay, not that exotic unless you consider Botany Downs exotic.

My first thought when I was approached to try this truffle oil was: “Are you sure you have the correct account?” and my 2nd thought was “What is a truffle?”

I always thought they were those cute, fluffy things from that Star Trek episode, but turns out that they are actually a fungus that grows underground like a potato and also not at all like the AI interpretation in the above picture.

But as they say in the famous philosophical question: ‘If a truffle grows underground in a forest and no one is there to see it, can Bing use DALL-E to generate an image of it?”

Another question – How do I eat this? Profine food stores have plenty of recipe ideas on their website linked in their bio, like Parmesan Truffle Fries and Creamy Cauliflower Blue Cheese Soup With Truffle Oil 😲 but I know how to cook only one thing that could live up to my impressions of what truffle oil should be, a cheese omelet.

I had been forewarned and I am now forewarning you, this is intensely flavoured. A little drizzle of this goes a long way in terms of flavouring your food. I am only allowed to buy like 2 packs of eggs at my supermarket at a time – not sure how I am going to get through all this oil.

And, woah! No wonder people like this stuff so much. It isn’t really mushroom, but that is about as close as I can get to anything I have ever tasted. It is much richer and complex, earthy, a little nutty and has almost a spicy bite to it. You absolutely have to try it to know what I am talking about. It is very unique.

I am not a truffle expert, in fact I would describe myself as a truffle amateur, now that I have tried it once, but what I am an expert in is sh1t that taste good and this definitely qualifies. How many of you have used truffle/truffle oil? What should I try it in next?
