Morgenster White Truffle Enhanced EVOO

Morgenster white truffle olive oilWhite Truffle Enhanced Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Producer: Morgenster

Product Description

The truffle, a cross between a potato and a mushroom, grows only in certain regions of the world; all the more elusive as it is not cultivable. The white truffle, found in Alba, Italy, grows on the roots of oaks, poplars, willows and hazelnut trees, is ‘hunted’ by dogs and their “trifulao” masters in the dead of night to conceal their hunting grounds. The scent, redolent of earth and wood and vaguely garlicky, permeates the senses rapturously.

Native to Piedmont, Morgenster’s owner Giulio Bertrand is naturally passionate about the white truffle and has made it available to us all by importing the white truffle extract which is blended into Morgenster’s world acclaimed extra virgin olive oil with spectacular results. This is a ‘must have’ in the kitchen of every Chef – executive, aspiring or otherwise. The golden rule when using this product is to use it sparingly; just a couple of drops will tantalise your taste buds.

Tasting Notes

An intense earthy nose with overtones of mushroom. At first the aroma is often associated with garlic.

The taste is difficult to describe but unmistakably delicious. The intense earthy and mushroom aromas follow through to the palate.
