Truffle Oil and Natural Truffle Flavor

pitu | Oct 26, 200609:55 PM     8

I just tried a truffle oil - or rather truffle aromatic condiment with EVOO and natural truffle flavor. Product of Italy. The brand is TrentinAceti s.a.s. of TAIO (TN), whose product line is usually good. This stuff is a disappointment.
A quality olive oil for sure, but you only get That Truffle Oooomph as a delayed aftertaste. I have not drizzled it on anything warm yet -- just opened the bottle to sample.

My only other experience of truffle oil is fresh out of the Italian artisan's hands - THAT had a fabulous knockout truffle aroma and essence.

So, I'm wondering...am I going to find good stuff in the USA? Do I have to make it myself?

As soon as Trader Joe's gets it in stock, I'll have a taste. With low expectations. : )
