For a long time.. I've seen people talking on TV about a drizzle of truffle oil.. or shaved truffles.. being just this insanely good thing to do for food. I know truffles are mushrooms with intense flavor but I've read that the flavor is hard to describe because good truffles are unlike other mushrooms.
So my question here is regarding how I might know what a good truffle oil is? I bought some on a whim because a place I go that has overstock items had white truffle oil by the name of "Sonoma Harvest". The stuff smells kinda strange to me but then I don't know what it should smell like.
Would you recommend a particular brand that would be good? I guess without comparing I wouldn't know. I do know that this particular oil was not expensive, but at 6.00 I would expect retail to be 12-15.
