phil, i'm a simple person....never tasted truffles, or the oil....should i splurge? is it that good?
Oh it's good all right. Truffle oil smells like sex -- seriously. Now maybe that's not to everyone's taste but ... I'm not sure how to finish that sentence.

Fresh truffles (the season runs from Sept to Dec) are also tres expensive, and not every palate "gets it." The white truffles (which I think are slightly earlier than the black) are the more flavorful.

Adding just a few drops of truffle oil -- to an omelette, a risotto, etc -- is like cheating.

(Rocket, I was jerking yer chain re olive oil; I have the stuff coursing through my veins. :))
