You can put a truffle or two in a bottle of olive oil and make your own truffle oil.

my beef wellington recipe called for truffles... but i substituted by using white mushrooms with truffle oil... im sure beef wellington made with your truffles would be outstanding...

I mean if you are going to eat a 400$ mushroom you cant have it with a .99 cent box of pasta!!! Go to the butcher and get a nice cut of meat and really treat yourself!

On one of Colameco's shows there was a dish that made my mouth water. I can't remember all the ingredients but it consisted of lobster tail topped with a fried egg and shaved truffles. I think there was some sort of sauce there too.

Yes, I was watching the Animal Planet Eukanuba Dog Show one day and there was a brief skit on one of the dog breeds that does it for a living in Europe. They were showing how the breed can be trained to sniff and point them out.

slide slivers under the skin of a whole chicken and poach it in stock. Classic dish known as Poulet Demi-Deuil (half-mourning).

actually, my favorite way to eat them is slivered into softly scrambled eggs (with heavy cream!)

Did you all know that the "truffle oil" we all buy is made with chemical flavors, and not with truffles at all?????

I wouldn't spend my truffles on making truffle oil! way too costly.

I really want to figure out how to make the grilled cheese with truffles. They had it on Gossip Girl and she oohed and ahhed. Do you think that would work as well as they claim?
