back in the saddle


Some fantastic products arrived at my door the other day and while I sometimes get things that are a little challenging to create recipes from, this one is going to be the most challenging by far. Seriously, who wants to make lame dishes with good truffle oils, porcini oils, truffle butters and truffle honey? daRosario offers organic oils, butters and honey made with only the best ingredients, so I have my little thinking cap on and I am going to make some napoleons with polenta and wild mushrooms, I will make some kind of seasonal fresh pasta, maybe a ramp pasta or some other spring veggie. I will have to make something out of fiddlehead ferns, something with early peas and snowpeas, I still need to grill that Permit and thats where I am now. I am still in the planning stages it could all change when I hit the markets. If you have any ideas or requests or suggestions I am open for anything.

Donna-FFW said...

Im sure you will rise to the challenge of using these wonderful ingredients. No doubt.

Michele said...

black truffle butter goes wonderfully with beef...or in mac and cheese. (my doctor is always bragging about her truffle oil mac and cheese) I'm really looking forward to what you come up with with these beautiful ingredients!

Hornsfan said...

oooh freebies! i'm jealous, these look tasty and i'm sure you'll pull together some fantastic dishes with them!

Stacey Snacks said...

Truffle butter?
Now I want some of that, just spread on toasted pane pugliese, please.

lisaiscooking said...

That truffle oil is awesome. Can't wait to see your creations!

doggybloggy said...

ramya: I really hope to find some mushrooms...

donna: double entendre much?

michele: I cant wait to slather it on everything...

hornsfan: cant beat that-

stacey: now I have to google pane pugliese - so that I can find out more than that it is bread from puglia...

lisa: did you have some?

Elyse said...

Lucky you! I'd love some truffle oil.

gastroanthropologist said...

Shut up! Is that white truffle butter I see???!!! You are so lucky. Before I left the restaurant world my addition to our truffle tasting menu was a white wine poached pear, sliced and bruleed. On top was white truffle ice cream - basically a vanilla ice cream with chopped white truffle folded in. Truffles are to die for and I am so jealous you got all that stuff!
