Truffle oil is a modern culinary ingredient, used to impart the flavour and pleasant aroma of truffles to a dish.
This quality truffle oil from Casa Rinaldi achieves its pungent, woodsy aroma and earthy flavour by balancing the white truffle infusion with the delicate flavour of Italian EVOO. Add a dash of this important condiment to pasta, risotto, pizza, eggs, mashed potato, "truffle fries" or just about anything that needs an earthy, perhaps garlicky kick.
Truffle oils are generally not used in cooking, as the heat adulterates their flavours. Instead, they are added after a dish is prepared or used in salads and other cold dishes.
Casa Rinaldi was born from the passion for the Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and takes its name from the building of 1888 housing in his attic the old vinegar factory of the Rinaldi family, a place where time seems to stand still. Today Casa Rinaldi is a modern company that counts three locations in Italy, one in Florence (Tuscany) specialising in the bottling of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegars and sauces.
