“From Aglaia Kremezi. This luxurious oil will taste best if you make it with fresh truffles, but it can also be made with good-quality whole truffles preserved in brine. To make truffle-flavoured bruschetta, toast slices of country bread, then, while they are still warm, rub a halved garlic clove over them and drizzle with this oil. Serve as an appetizer. For a real treat, mix a few tablespoonfuls of the oil with butter when making scrambled eggs. This has a 3-5 day standing time.”
