Truffle Oil

I know i've read some recipes using truffle oil, but my mind is blank. I bought some yesterday and I'd like to use it soon. Anyone have any ideas? Can i use it like olive oil?

It should be used as a finishing oil for it's aroma as much as it's flavor if not more so.

It is intoxicating drizzled over a little homemade pizza or pasta and same for rissottto. It pairs with just about anything that has mushrooms in it and will enhance the flavor and smell.

If you are dating or looking for a signifacant other you can put a few drops behind your ears and wait for them to come running.
