Does Anyone like Truffles?

Ask a Question

Not the chocolate variety ๐Ÿ˜œ

The distinctive flavour of the truffle is something I quite like, but others seem to think itโ€™s too pungent for their tastebuds

I tend to get the truffle flavoured crisps when on offer, and sometimes I treat myself to the truffle cheese they have in Waitrose - again, preferably when I can get a discount on it

Yes, but I've rarely had the real thing. I like truffle oil and other flavoured products. A quick search came up with 10 restaurants with truffle dishes. The Truffle Pudding at the bottom sounds really delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ - https://sheerluxe.com/2019/11/04/10-best-truffle-dishes-london

That does sound yummy! I imagine that Iโ€™ve only had the lower graded stuff, as I have not paid too much for it, so Iโ€™m willing to go by recommendations for a better quality truffle experience ๐Ÿ˜Š

I must admit I have never tried them. Saw a programme recently and was shocked at how expensive they are and the lengths people go to in order to harvest them.

Yes itโ€™s definitely well sought after. I watched a video where they said they had some flown over at a premium price. The lengths people go to get things lol

My partner is obsessed with the truffle fries from Prezzo... I think they smell disgusting, so thatโ€™s enough to put me off!

It definitely has a pungent smell, and can be an acquired taste. Iโ€™ve yet to try them from prezzo though. I tried them in some pubs and GBK, and they were ok

I immediately thought of chocolates not the truffles youโ€™re referring to! Yes I love the choc ones but the others I just truffle oil drizzled on dishes.

I've had truffle flavour things, which I love, but never actually had truffles I don't think, unfortunately. Must try them at some point!

I tried some products with truffles but it was not a wow for me....I think porchini mushrooms have better flavor...

i think I also prefer the taste and flavours of porchini also - I do like truffles, but mushrooms in general are more suited to my palate

I was hoping you meant the chocolate ones ๐Ÿ˜œ I've never tried the other ones, do they taste like mushrooms?

Lol ๐Ÿ˜Š I would say theyโ€™re a lot more pungent and earthier tasting than mushrooms...definitely a marmite kind of thing

hspexy do you mean you either love or hate, or they have that strong flavour? Id love to try if they were in something, but i really don't like mushroom, so if they're more earthier maybe i won't

KirstyWaddell lol yes, a love or hate scenario because of the strong flavour. Some people donโ€™t like the smell. Around this time last year, both M&S and Kettle Chips brought out truffle flavoured crisps for the Xmas period, which is worth trying as it won't cost a lost try. I hope they do it again this year ๐Ÿ˜Š

KirstyWaddell tbh the percentage of truffle oil used is tiny, perhaps only 0.1%, but the flavour is distinctly truffle-like. Itโ€™s probably not as pungent as the higher graded, expensive truffles, but the crisps is a good intro to the truffle flavour ๐Ÿ˜Š
