Truffle salt is a mix of pure white salt with tiny shavings of black or white truffle. It combines salty flavour with a rich kick of umami from the truffle.

What is so special about truffle salt? 

Truffle salt adds the rich, earthy flavour of truffle in just a pinch. Typically very expensive and highly coveted, this means truffle salt offers an alternative to regular truffle shavings for anyone who may not be able to afford this pricier ingredient. It adds bold flavour in small quantities! 

How does truffle salt differ from regular salt?

Truffle salt is usually used in a similar way as regular salt. But because truffle salt has a more concentrated flavour, you can use less of it than you would with regular salt. So if you’re cooking something that doesn’t require much seasoning, using truffle salt will give them a nice boost of flavour without overpowering the dish. 

What are the best ways to use truffle salt?

Truffle salt can be used in many different ways. It is often used as a seasoning for eggs, pasta and mashed potatoes. The warm earthy aroma makes it perfect for flavouring sauces, soups, stews, grilled vegetables and roasted meats. Add a dash of truffle salt to your favourite pasta dish or use it as an easy replacement for Parmesan cheese on top of any meat or vegetable dish!
