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!
