Black Truffle Infused Oil by 'DIRFIS'

€8.50
The condiments infused with Black Truffle are a harmonious combination of one of the best extra virgin oils - made from the Kothreiki and ladolia variety, with a gentle fragrance that blends perfectly with the rich aroma of black truffles.
The truffle in Greece was known by the name "'Ydnon". It was sought after for its pharmaceutical and aphrodisiac qualities and for its wonderful flavour and aroma.

The culinary use of truffle has been known in the Mediterranean countries, since ancient Greece. The kind of tubers used for this oil are the melanosporum, whose name comes from the Greek words "melani" (black) and "sporum" (seed).

There is nothing that compares to the flavour of truffle and that feeling you get when you take your first bite, a delicious pleasure that excites the senses, a feeling of intoxication you wish would never end. The truffle arouses our fifth ‘taste’ umami, which our tongue possesses precisely for the purpose of appreciating gastronomic marvels such as the truffle.

Wild growing Greek truffles are considered to be of excellent quality and one of the best truffles in the world. This rare mushroom is characterised by its unique aroma and it's special flavour.

A few drops are enough to make pasta dishes, risottos, frumenty soup, mashed potatoes or even a grilled steak or a fillet steak, prepared in a frying pan, stand out.
