The real deal truffle oil. Ever since trying this in Spain we’ve been hooked on making it at home. An all-in dish to share over drinks or the start of a meal

Hot Truffle Dipping Oil with fresh black truffles

Ingredients:

  • Quality olive oil, mellow flavour

  • Quality sea salt flakes, like Olsson’s

  • Baguette

  • Fresh black truffle

Method:

  • Put an empty, deep sided plate in the oven at 100°C. Stoneware is best as it holds the heat.

  • When blistering hot, remove carefully and swap for the baguette. Forewarn your guests not to touch as you place the empty plate on a heatproof mat amongst them.

  • Working quickly, flood the plate with oil. Add liberal amounts of salt and shavings of truffle across the surface. Take a moment to enjoy the deep waft of truffle as the piping hot plate warms the oil.

  • Remove baguette from the oven when the plate’s just cool enough to touch. Invite everyone to tear off chunks and mop up the warm ,salty, truffle-y goodness.
