About Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Black Truffle

Condiment infused with Black Truffle Aroma’ is a harmonious combination of one of the best extra virgin oils, the extra virgin olive oil with black truffle – made from the Kothreiki and Ladolia variety, with a gentle fragrance that blends perfectly with the rich aroma of black truffles. The truffle in Greece is known since antiquity under the name “Ydnon”. It was very much sought after for its pharmaceutical and aphrodisiac qualities and for its wonderful flavour and aroma. It is not a surprising fact, that a great many ancient poets and writers were inspired by it. Pliny considered truffles as “marvels of nature”, while Porphyry called them “children of the gods”.

The culinary use of truffle has been known in the Mediterranean countries, since ancient Greece. The kind of tubers used are the melanosporum, whose name comes from the Greek words “melani” (black) and “sporum” (seed).

The truffle is not only a food nor a flavouring, or an aroma. The truffle is a combination of all of these things. Nothing compares to that feeling you get when you take your first bite, a delicious pleasure that excites the senses, a feeling of intoxication you wish would never end.

The truffle arouses our fifth ‘taste’ umami, which our tongue possesses precisely for the purpose of appreciating gastronomic marvels such as the truffle.

Wild growing Greek truffle are considered to be of excellent quality and one of the best truffles in the world. This rare mushroom is characterised by its’ unique aroma and its’ special flavour.

Storage and shelf life

Store olive oil in a cool, dry, tinted airtight glass container or nonreactive metal container, away from the sunlight and heat.

Olive oil, when properly stored, will retain its flavor and aroma for 12-18 months from the packaging date. After that, remains edible but after a point will become rancid and lose any nutritional value and antioxidants and definitely will add a weird smell to your food.

So, your olive oil went rancid. Now what? Whatever you do, don’t pour it—or any cooking oil, for that matter—down the drain. This can clog your pipes and city sewer mains, and eventually pollute waterways. It also can’t be composted. The best practice is to transfer the spoiled olive oil to a nonrecyclable container (like a cardboard milk carton or takeout container) and throw it in the trash.

A few drops of extra virgin olive oil with black truffle are enough to make pasta dishes, risottos, frumenty soup, mashed potatoes or even a grilled steak or a fillet steak, prepared in a frying pan, stand out.
