'Whosoever says truffle, utters a grand word, which awakens erotic and gastronomic ideas.' The renowned gastronome, Brillat-Savarin, was quite the truffle fan. In his honour Sous Chef have brought together a mini collection of luxurious truffle products that would have him salivating in his grave.
This mini truffle gift set would make the perfect indulgent present for mushroom lovers and an exuberant treat to use in recipes all year round. These delightful truffle products are produced in Acqualagna, the home of Italy's truffle market, by Marini & Azzolini who have been collecting and producing truffle products for over 50 years:
Black Truffle Oil
Black truffle oil has a wonderfully intense aroma and rich earthy flavours. The truffle oil should be used as a finishing oil - to drizzle over dishes just before serving. The fine truffled Italian extra virgin olive oil is delicious drizzled over beef fillets, mushroom risottos, roasted celeriac and jerusalem artichokes, or even scrambled eggs for a luxurious breakfast dish.
Acacia Honey with Truffle
Truffle honey is a delicious condiment made from amber-coloured acacia honey, infused with slivers of real truffle. The intense aromas of truffle honey go particularly well with ricotta and blue cheeses. Truffle-flavoured honey has a savoury richness which means it’s also delicious drizzled over grilled meats and savoury bourekas.
Truffle & Mushroom Salsa
This truffle & mushroom salsa is a umami-rich blend of mushrooms, with a hint of truffle. Spoon onto crusty bread, stir through pasta, or spoon straight from the jar. The lightly textured truffle salsa is great dabbed onto rare roast beef as a small flavoursome canapé, drizzled over cheese on toast, or even spooned straight from the jar.
Carnaroli Risotto Rice With Truffle
This carnaroli rice is mixed with dried mushrooms, vegetables, and summer truffles for the classic Italian risotto experience. Carnaroli risotto rice is the ‘caviar' of Italian rice, and has a long, elegant grain which holds its shape to create a beautifully-textured risotto.
