Our family adores Truffles.  To the delight of our palates but dismay of our bank accounts, both our children would rather have pasta con Tartuffo than almost any other food in the world.  Since truffles are often unaffordable and unseasonable we’ve been trying different methods of getting the flavor without resorting to expensive European vacations or exorbitant shipping costs.  One of those methods has been to use truffle salt.

Good Fior di sale al Tartufo isn’t cheap, it retails from around $20.00 per 100 grams.  Good Truffle Salt is sea salt infused with truffle and nothing else. The more truffle in the product, the more aroma and flavor.  Opening a jar of the salt, to me, is better than opening a jar of perfume.  The aroma of the truffle permeates and my salivatory glands immediately begin watering in anticipation.  Although the salt is expensive it is worth it.  Used in small amounts, the truffle can give subtle depth to a dish and give a rich flavor.

Buonafide foods wants you to experience real Sale al Tartufo and has sponsored a giveaway of Urbani product that we are pleased to present.  They are giving away two jars of Urbani Truffle Salt.  Please read the rules below.  In your comments we would love to find out if you’ve used truffle salt and whether you prefer the black or the white.
