'Whosoever says truffle, utters a grand word, which awakens erotic and gastronomic ideas.' The renowned gastronome, Brillat-Savarin, would have adored a truffle gift set. In his honour Sous Chef have curated this luxurious gift set with a collection of fine truffle products that would have him salivating in his grave.
This deluxe 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:
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.
White truffle oil
White truffle oil’s intense aromas are a great way to finish a dish and lace it with complex flavours. White winter truffles (tuber magnatum pico) are collected between October and December, and known for their musky aroma and shallot-garlic notes. Try drizzling a small amount of the white truffle oil on risottos, fish and carpaccio.
Black truffle oil
Black truffle oil has a wonderfully intense aroma and rich earthy flavours - for real truffle connoisseurs, try comparing it to the white. This 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.
Taste of Truffle
'Taste of truffle' or 'sapor di tartufo' is an unctuous umami-rich mushroom sauce stirred through with summer truffles, giving it a delicate truffle flavour. The textured mushroom truffle salsa is fabulous spread on crunchy sourdough bread, or on small crackers as a tasty canape. Alternatively stir a few tablespoons through a bowl of pasta for a luxurious wintry supper dish.
Carnaroli Rice with truffle
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. This carnaroli rice is mixed with dried mushrooms, vegetables, and summer truffles for the classic Italian risotto experience.
Truffle butter is a rich and intensely-flavoured spread made from finely-crumbled truffles churned with butter. The creamy truffle butter is delicious when melted over grilled fish or steaks. It can also be spread over canapés, and is great when stirred into a bowl of linguine or gnocchi.
Pumpkin and Truffle Puree
Pumpkin and truffle puree is a luxurious ready-to-use sauce or filling for homemade ravioli or tortellini. The rich, sweet and velvety pumpkin puree is given earthy depth by black truffle. Serve with fresh pasta, crispy fried sage leaves and just a touch of freshly grated parmesan for an indulgent supper.
