Truffle-flavored potato chips, marcona almonds, butters, flatbreads… If “truffle” is in its title, we fortunately toss it into our carts. So it serves as no shock that once we discovered Truff, a model recognized for its bestselling truffle-infused scorching sauce, in addition to its mayonnaise and pasta sauces, was launching a black truffle oil, we knew we needed to attempt it.
Elegantly packaged in a modern bottle with a black label and signature truffle-shaped lid, it took however a drizzle to nominate the newly launched oil our new go-to condiment.

An Italian examine from a number of years again discovered black truffles produce a pure chemical very like THC, the energetic compound in marijuana.)
Throughout our Truff truffle oil style check, we drizzled it (it’s not meant for use as a cooking oil) on scrambled eggs (we are going to by no means return to plain eggs once more), blended spring greens (it served as a splendidly savory easy dressing), french fries contemporary from the air fryer (so yummy seasoned with salt and pepper) and — our favourite, favourite, favourite — on just-popped popcorn (do your self a favor and take a look at utilizing the Truff oil with this James Beard-approved recipe).
However we’re not stopping there. Pasta, roasted potatoes and different veggies, breads, fish, pizza… They’ll all be getting a wholesome dose of prompt luxurious with Truff’s black truffle oil within the weeks to come back.
