Truffle tips: You can really add a touch of romance with truffles, we often use truffle salts and butter. We have plenty of truffle items.   

Shortcut Alert: check out our truffle balsamic glaze, and skip making a reduction yourself.  This is a wonderful item.

Step 1: Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place steaks in hot pan, and cook for 1 minute on each side, or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-low, and add balsamic vinegar and red wine. Cover, and cook for 4 minutes on each side, basting with sauce when you turn the meat over.

Try adding your truffle butter or truffle salt, or cream to your potatoes. Melt the butter on top as a final touch before serving or a small pinch of truffle salt for an aroma explosion. Add a little truffle cream, conventional milk, or cream with truffle. Truffle oil is also a condiment we keep - it's more of a finishing touch than something you cook with.

In Mexico huitlacoche is used in soups, sauces, and prepared for using as a filling in dishes like quesadillas and tacos.  Don’t be intimidated by the appearance of huitlacoche! At first sight, it may not look appealing to eat even the adventurous foodie. Its earthy flavor and mushroom-like texture, however, more than make up for its appearance! Use it in quesadillas, tostadas, crostini, omelets and very much like you would use mushrooms, especially for meatless dishes.
