Ill just leave this here.
my son has a friend who is a chef and he told me truffle oil is the cheap drug store version of an expensive perfume - like cheap perfume, a little goes a long way -
seems like it was a fad for a while, but i haven't seen it lately -
You mean it has cats piss in it?
Truffle oil is amazing for frying french fried potatoes.
How do you make truffle oil fries?
Place the sliced fries in a fryer or large pot of canola oil at 350° and cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.
Once the fries are cooked strain from the oil and toss in a large bowl with the Parmesan cheese, truffle oil, parsley, and salt and pepper and serve.

Can you fry with truffle oil?
Long answer short, you don't. Truffle oil isn't for cooking, it's a finishing oil, like the higher grades of olive oil used to add more flavor to a dish before serving. If you cook truffle oil, it just became super-expensive regular olive oil cause you killed all the fake truffle.Dec 24, 2012
Did I miss something here? I have six cats, in no way does anything cat resemble truffle, or at least truffle oil.
Urine can make the smell in perfume last longer.
Apparently some perfume manufacturers have been known to add cats urine for this reason.
What is your point? The Truffle Oil smell is unlike anything I've ever smelled. Certainly not like litter box. More closely like artichoke, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, and kohlrabi.
The quote I replied to mentioned truffle oil being the cheap drug store equivalent of truffle like cheap drug store perfume is to expensive perfume. Cheap drug store perfume knockoffs were reported to contain cats urine a few years ago. I was joking about the link to Truffle oil containing cats urine.
In the fancy restaurants around here, I see truffle mac and cheese quite a bit and it's pretty good I'll say. Think about the relatively bland flavor of mac and cheese although you should get a nice cheese, and then add that funk of truffle you mention and it really gooses up the flavor, imparts a nice earthy funkus to an otherwise so-so side dish. Go for it!
Had to laugh at my sister's snobiness. We were on a certain Indonesian island where a cat like animal eats the husk of a coffee bean, poos it out, then it's dried, the husk, and ground to coffee ( think " The Bucket List"). Well she HAD to try it and buy some. It was about $35 an ounce but sold in kilogram packs ( c. 2.2 lbs.) my bro-in-law , her husband, and I, just had to laugh.
She recently bought a hand woven Persian knotted "carpet" in Iran, the size of a bath towel, for $6,000, and her dog chewed it up. LOL
Heard this in the truck a couple days ago.....an interesting piece on truffles on NPR.
I used the little bottle of T oil to fry a steak one night, was good.
There are two things that give me heartburn, one is garlic powder, the others is truffle oil. The garlic powder I knew about, the truffle oil I didn't, now I do, it gave me heartburn for days.
I've had this pizza at this Italian place that had it, although I think they also put something else that seems to fake truffles on it, maybe bits of mushroom?
It tasted pretty good to me.
I would not consider boiling a fish to be very well thought out.
i agree about the truffle oil smell - its definitely not like cat piss - i used the example of cheap knock-off perfume compared to the real thing is similar to how enhanced
truffle oil is to the real thing - evidently many people do enjoy the aroma and flavor of the cheap enhanced truffle oil, it just didn't work for me - i think someone in the
kitchen was way to liberal with the truffle oil on my plate and the aroma and flavor were overwhelming - it was on my potatoes and i was anxious to try it so that was
the first item i tasted - bad move - everything i ate after that tasted like truffle oil, including my steak - i suspect that the real truffle oil which is very expensive is used
very sparingly and the cheaper enhanced version is used way more liberally - you have already bought the truffle oil, so have a little fun and try it on different dishes -
i would advise to use it sparingly though -
This is interesting - I noticed that on some of those cooking shows that the contestant was instantly fired for using truffle oil.
Still dont know why and I have never tried it.
Love Truffle oil. My favorite local Pizza place makes a Truffle oil pizza. Out of this world.
You don't use it like oil. You use it like seasoning. Too much of it usually overpowers other tastes and is unpleasant. I put a big dash of it in the olive oil I put on capellini, garlic, peas, and Romano.
The cheapest way to get the good stuff is at Trader Joe's.
