Reply To: FE520 The nature of Truffle Oils

Alana McGee

Last year I literally stumbled on one… Cooked it poorly aka like other mushrooms- and had the exact same reaction you did. They were gross.

HOWEVER I since have had other people cook them in asian style flavor palate devoid of dairy, with sake and a wee bit of soy sauce and they were pretty good. I tried to re-create myself this weekend with less success. They are very strong and I added too much soy which brought out that intense weird cinnamon quality they have.

I feel like I’d have to be in the mood for it, but when someone cooks them who knows what they are doing, i’ve had decently positive experiences- but I’m not totally sold, yet. I do like finding them though 🙂 Almost as much as truffle hunting 🙂
