Looking to give your home-cooked meals a Michelin star finish? Make truffle oil your best friend in the kitchen.
We all recognise truffle as that ultra exxy ingredient which, per kilo, is considered one of the most expensive foods in the world. We see it on the menus of top restaurants around the world, but rarely do we ever use it at home. Real truffles have a short shelf life and are jacked up in price patricularly due to how difficult they are to find and grow. However, in the form of an oil, truffle is not only made accessible and more affordable, but also easy to store for longer periods of time. That’s why we’ve been living for Truff‘s Black Truffle Oil lately!
Giving your dishes a gourmet touch, this rich and flavoursome oil is ready to take your home-cooking to the next level. Whether you’re trying it for the first time or are just after some inspiration to freshen up your everyday meals, here are some of the best ways to enjoy truffle oil from the comfort of your own home:
Boujee breakfast done right. Eggs are a brekkie staple, but can get a little boring over time if you don’t shake things up! Truffle oil will give your eggs on toast that little extra oomph, setting you up for a successful day ahead.
Truffle oil and pizza are a match made in heaven. Just a small drizzle will instantly upgrade your homemade pizza, whether its a classic margarita, heavy meatlovers or vegeterian delight. For a pizza style that truly feels high-class, opt for thinner crust and high quality toppings from your local specialty grocer.
Hot chips are that comfort food you keep coming back to, every single time. But perhaps dipping them in tomato sauce is getting repetitive? Or you’re growing bored of American mustard? Up the ante on this basic side with a dash of truffle oil on top. Your fries will go from McDonalds takeaway to Creme de la Creme Pommes Frites in no time.
To Dip Bread In
Start your five-star dinner at home with an entree of locally baked bread and truffle oil on the side. The Italians know exactly what’s up, because when you have quality ingredients, the rest can be kept simple. Whether it’s a fluffy sourdough or dense rye, there’s no bread that truffle oil won’t complement. And just those two combined will kick your feast off in serious style!
No matter if you’re cooking for one or impressing a group of friends, truffle oil is bound to be on high rotation in your everyday cooking. Sometimes, it’s the littlest things in life that can keep us feeling fancy, fabulous, and simply content — even if it is just a drizzle of this godly condiment!
