Truffle Oil

Truffle oil.  Who would have thought that a few drops could make such a difference to a dish?

I made mashed potatoes and artichoke hearts to go with my corned beef.  I added a few drops of truffle oil, made by the Wine & Truffle Co., Manjimup.

As soon as I tasted it I recognised the flavour.  This was actually the dish I ate at the Quest in Auckland long ago,  which until now I had thought was a variation of skorthalia, and which I have been trying to reproduce ever since.  Got it at last!


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
