Truffle chips


I’ve said it a few times already about other foods, but I really do love truffle. It’s one of the world’s priciest delicacies, and definitely my favorite of the bunch. I’ll take it over a glass of champagne with caviar any day of the week. The smell alone sends leaves me drooling.

I recently picked up a bag of gourmet potato chips that was flavored with truffle. The packaging said that it used real truffle in addition to truffle oil, and I could indeed make out some specks of black truffle. The aroma was distinctly truffle-like, a wonderful smell.

As far as the chips were concerned, these were some of the best I’ve had. They were crispy and crunchy in a way that could only be done with love and care, and with real sliced potato. Artisanal is a word that springs to mind, cliché as it might be. The taste of truffle was there, and although it didn’t leave completely, it did dull down towards the end.
