Any Truffle experts out there?
I've been looking into different Truffle oils as a gift for someone. I've read that most Truffle oils are just a synthetic compound and that it's actually very difficult to infuse the truffle flavor into oil. Most of the ones I've looked at seem to be infused, and don't list any strange chemicals in the ingredients list, and the reviews are basically all across the board, so I can't ascertain what's real and what's worth the price. Does anybody have any recommended brands or sellers?
I've also noticed a few places selling Truffle Salt, and the reviews for that seem to be much more consistent and favorable. Is it a better idea to go with the salt than the oil?
