What exactly are Truffles?
Truffles are a type of subterranean fungus. They can be found in many parts of the world but are mainly concentrated in regions such as the Italian and French countryside. Truffles are considered very valuable because they are seasonal, difficult to find and extremely rare. It takes around 7 to 15 years to cultivate these “diamonds” of the culinary world.
Did you know? Truffles actually give off a smell similar to the pheromones that males produced to attract females which is why women sometimes describe the aroma of truffles as sensual. Who knows, try some of our Sabatino truffle products and maybe you will be seduced by them too.
What’s the Difference between White and Black Truffle?
In CS Frozen Food, we offer both white and black truffle oil, along with truffle zest and paste. Many customers ask us what’s the difference between white and black truffle oil and how to use them in cooking. Here, we will share with you some tips you will find very useful in deciding what to use!
Black Truffle Oil
Black Truffles have the strongest flavour among all the truffles. Due to their robust flavour and pungent aroma, they are best paired with stronger foods. The same is true for Sabatino black truffle oil which is made from Italian olive oil infused with black truffle extract. Their strong and earthly flavour is an excellent complement of red meat, creamy sauces and savoury pastries. Add black truffle oil to cooked sauces, drizzle over hearty meat dishes or add a tablespoon or so onto a vinaigrette dressing for the maximum impact.
White Truffle Oil
Unlike Black Truffle, White Truffle has a more subtle flavour and aroma, but they are the rarest among all truffle due to the fact that they only grow in the cooler months of Fall and Winter. Made from Italian olive oil infused with White Truffle extracts, the white truffle oil has a slightly garlicky and peppery flavour. It is an excellent match with beef carpaccio, white-fleshed fish, shellfish and meats with more delicate flavours. Other than meat, White Truffle Oil can also be used on dishes such as risottos, pastas, egg dishes and fondues.
