To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The truffle slices arrived and were not as strong a flavour as expected. I also ordered the truffle salt and that was amazing. The package arrived within two days which was great delivery service given I live in regional Victoria . Overall I wasn't disappointed but just expected more of a taste sensation from the slices.
I have had a lot of truffle products in the past, I don't know if its just because these are preserved in oil but they aren't as fragrant as I'm used too? Maybe I am just being a bit picky. This is certainly worth a try though.
Used to make Spaghetti with Truffle. Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water. Meanwhile; soften thinly sliced red onion in plenty of olive oil, add 1 teaspoon of truffle slices per person. Fry on a medium heat for 3-4 minutes then add a "glug" of white white and reduce for a couple of minutes. Pour a table spoon of the water from the spaghetti and 50g of butter into the truffle mix and keep on a low heat. Drain the spaghetti and add to the frying pan, coat the spaghetti in the truffle mix and serve. Delicious...
I did not find the truffle slices very impressive at all. The flavour is very mild and cannot easily be detected. I shall be using the slices to infuse in a good olive oil because frankly I cannot envisage using the slices in my kitchen. The flavour is practically undetectable.Perhaps the infused oil will be flavourful enough to drizzle on bread and sprinkle with salt.
Too good to be true and a great way to get the elegant flavour into a dish. Used the slices under the skin of good quality chicken. Cooked the legs sous-vide and flash roasted the crown. The flavour was superb, it's a great product at a sensible(ish) price and probably the simplest way to acquire truffles in the UK. If you've never tried them before and always wondered, do it now, an excellent product with excellent service.
An absolute waste of money. Even the oil it’s preserved in is tasteless. Not sure how old the other reviews are. I bought this a couple weeks ago (September 2020), and was utterly disappointed when I opened it to make truffle mac and cheese. Even eating it straight out of the jar, there is no flavour. The smallest hint/whiff of truffle smell upon opening is just from the artificial truffle flavour they add, I’m sure.
We bought a jar of black truffle slices and a jar minced truffles. Combining these two truffle products gives ultimate truffle experience. Our favourite dish with truffles is pasta with prosciutto in white wine and sage. The truffles are added to the pasta after the dish is done to give the most flavour. TruffleHunter black truffles are full of thick flavour and we are definitely satisfied with it. The service was awesome, with extra fast shipping (important when you are craving truffles :)). Truffle jars came in nice secure packaging making sure the jars are not damaged in the shipping.
