I was working from home today and eating one of my favorite snacks, and it dawned on me that I should tell you all about it. It’s super simple…your favorite air-popped pop corn with a healthy drizzle of truffle honey over it. Now, I know many people feel that the plethora of truffle oils and truffle foams found in restaurants of late is getting to be a bit obnoxious, but you have to admit…you still love that rich, decadent, earthy flavor of truffles! So I always have a jar of truffle honey in my fridge and often have truffle oil on hand as well. (awesome on just about everything, but especially asparagus, eggs and pasta). It’s just such a simple way to make an ordinary meal or snack feel a bit special.
So where can you get your truffle goodies? Well, many specialty stores carry them and certainly Whole Foods has a decent array but for those harder to find products I usually go to TruffleCafe.com. They are an off-shot of the Pike’s Place store La Buona Tavola which specializes in Italian foods and wines…if you haven’t been it’s a great stop in a fantastic Foodie haven! I reached out to trufflecafe.com and they have a 10% off discount code through May 15th…so if you want to try any products out, now is the time to do it! Perfect timing for Mother’s Day! The discount code to use at check out is trufflemom and if you spend over $60 you’ll get free shipping.
P.S. Another one of my favorite uses for Truffle Honey is to stuff dates with some good Stilton cheese and then drizzle the truffle honey on top. Mmm, mmm. Simple and decadent appetizer!
