    OK, I will admit it, I am fishing for some ideas here. I will be demoing White truffle oil at a food show and I am looking for opinions on the best way to present it, that is interesting , but still highlights the flavour of the oil. Any ideas?

    -Wild Mushroom Risotto topped with Duck Confit and drizzled with Port Wine Syrup and White Truffle Oil

    -Red Wine Braised Short Ribs with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Truffle Oil

    -Spicy Venison Tartar with Truffle Oil

    Those are a few off the top of my head. Will try to come up with a few more later.

    To demo the oil I might go for a more simple dish like cooked pasta and white truffle oil or a simple risotto topped with white truffle oil. I think it will highlight the product you are showing that way.

    I ate the pasta version yesterday and the day before and may still eat some more today. Sometimes there is beauty in simplicity. :lips:

    If you want, you can send me a case and I will create some other ways to eat white truffle oil :lips:

    Can you get a hold of some white asparagus this early? Drizzle with the oil and a small amount of clarified butter, top with salt etc. and you'll have them drooling. Mushrooms on toast (sourdough would punch it) as well -- with milder fungi, not something like oyster or shiitake. Or, keep it simple -- whip up some focaccia (did some tonight, yum) and drizzle or relax and allow them to dip. How about a simple salad with tomato and jicama, topped with scallops sauteed in shallots, prosciutto and arugula followed by the oil. Oh, oh! Gnocchi! Dude! I made that the other night – it went over beautifully! It would have ROCKED with truffle oil – if you want more detail let me know.
