How did I not discover truffle salt before? It was in California visiting my brother that I got slightly obsessed. Dave and Erin had received some for Christmas from Erin’s food loving brother Chris. Soon we were sprinkling it on everything– on eggs to finish pizza (amazing–why have any other toppings in fact) and even on our steak fajitas and what better on popcorn? And you can always just go with plain Tuscan butter, baguette and truffle salt.
This week we featured it the weekly quick gourmet recipe for the Globe. My new favourite lunch, see above.
Not all truffle salts are created equal I have discovered, some taste more like salt with some black specs that might be truffle– but the one I got from Williams Sonoma is amazingly earthy and rich–the smell is fantastic. Keep it in your bag–smelling salts for foodies. Not cheap–about $35.00 but you really don’t have to use much at all. Maybe a nice host or hostess gift even, if you really the people. Otherwise stick with the Yellowtail….kidding! (Unless you always bring Yellowtail and it works, then yah, def stick with it.)
Pass on any good truffle salt uses you have found if you like it too. Because you know, using it a zillion times a day just isn’t enough.
