Cooking at home with Truffles

By | Cuisine, Recipe

The truffle has been seen as a delicacy for centuries. Whether it be the Black truffle of Italy or the White truffle from France, truffles have always been seen as something that you could only find in the top restaurants during truffle season which runs from mid-September through December for White Truffles and November through February for the Black Truffle. But now with our Spuntino Truffle Oil you can create your own masterpieces at home.

@aldentediva on Instagram has created her own version of our famous truffle fries by using our Truffle Oil as a final drizzle to her homemade Parmesan fries.

You can use her method of drizzling our oil for flavor on veggies and meat dishes alike! But besides just a final touch to make a spectacular dish you can also use our truffle oil as a way to make the perfect mac and cheese! @longislandfoodsavage on Instagram created their own truffle macaroni and cheese which is one of the biggest crowd pleasers of all time!

If you are looking for a perfect ending to a holiday meal at Spuntino, try our Cold Brew Classic cocktail that pairs perfectly with our warm Apple Crostata. The homemade salted caramel in the drink works perfectly with the cinnamon and clove covered apples. If you are too chilly to have this Cold Brew Classic, Spuntino is able to make this cocktail with our Lavazza hot coffee!

Having a holiday party at home? Here are the two recipes to make it for your guests.

In a large pitcher add Jameson Irish Whiskey, cold brew coffee concentrate, salted caramel, and milk. Stir well to ensure that all the ingredients are blended together. Add ice to the pitcher. Pour into desired glasses and garnish with whipped cream.
