Truffle Oil: The Dark Side of Labeling

This bottle of “Truffle Oil” was part of a gorgeous Mishloach Manot/birthday present basket I received from my daughter Bella. Reading the ingredient list created an uproar among my guests. Not a single drop of truffle oil. Intrigued, I looked online for the price, which created some more consternation….I am hoping this image and the blurb that came with it tell the whole story. The price shown is for an 8-ounce bottle.

D Allasandro Brand White Truffle Oil can be used in salad dressings and vinaigrettes to give them an amazing earthy flavor.

HELPFUL HINT For maximum flavor, add D Allasandro Brand White Truffle Oil near the end of preparation of hot dishes. Ingredients:

PS: in the absence of truffle oil, make porcini oil: Quite close to truffle oil, and the real thing. The link includes all the wonderful things you can use porcini oil on, including a fabulous pasta with wild mushrooms.
