What are your plans this Valentine’s Day? Consider going a little beyond the heart-shaped box of chocolates from the drugstore. It might seem unconventional, but consider truffles of the sweet—and the more savory kind. White Truffle Oil and Black Truffle Oil make this celebrated ingredient more accessible.
A Tale of Two Truffles
When we talk truffles atRed Stick Spice, we’re either talking about the much-prized mushrooms or the delicious chocolate treats. The former, a type of dense mushroom, is cherished by gourmands for their rarity and unique flavor. The latter, the sweet kind, is a rich, velvety, chocolatey treat. Are you looking for a way to impress a loved one for Valentine’s Day—or any day? You can’t go wrong with either truffle selection.
Black Truffle Oil
When you're looking for a resounding "oomph" of truffle flavor, it's time to turn to ourBlack Truffle Oil. We infuse olive oil with black truffles to create your new cupboard staple. It’s more versatile and simpler to use than you might expect. Drizzle onpopcorn or french fries to seriously upgrade your Netflix date night. Or, you can dress up a bed of greens with a little roast chicken and parmesan for a simple—but unforgettable—salad. Double down on the truffle umami flavor with someBlack Truffle Sea Salt.
White Truffle Oil
White truffles are slightly more rare than black truffles. Many say their flavor is stronger and more complex. Instead of trying to train your pet pig to sniff out your truffle fix, pick up a bottle of ourWhite Truffle Oil. White Italian truffles combine with the highest quality of cold-pressed California olive oil. Elevate your steaks and favorite mac and cheese recipes. Risotto will be consumed stove side with a spoon. This oil delivers a big truffle flavor that's still delicate and sophisticated.
