I’ve heard that all the truffle oil that is sold is really still just infused chemically, even if it states differently. Could that be true? Where do I get the real stuff??
I don’t know what this has to do with manhattan, but it’s my understanding that there are no extractable oils from truffles that allow you to replicate their flavors in an oil, so what is sold as truffle oil is a chemical approximation.
I’m a much larger fan of truffle salt over truffle oil. The flavors tend to come out more. But I find the quality of salts to be quite varied.
Urbani Truffles (10 West End Ave) sells a variety of truffled products, including oils & salt.
