Tartufata Is A Delicious Addition To Your Meal
By Consuelo Dalton
To English speaking folks, the word tartufata may sound funny, but ask a person who speaks Italian what this strange word means, and they will tell you it is a delicious savory condiment that is made with mushrooms and truffles. Not the sweet candy truffles, of course, that you will find in confection stores, but the earthy, brown mushrooms that are so prized for gourmet meals.
This mushroom based sauce utilizes coarsely chopped or ground truffles that are sauteed in olive oil with onions and several cloves of garlic. A good wine is splashed in the pan and the mixture is simmered until it reduces down and gets thick. Once finished it is stored in a jar and can be used in a variety of ways.
No matter how you plan to serve it, this delectable condiment will be an elegant addition to your menu. Thinned with a bit of truffle oil and warmed for a sauce, you have a wonderful topping for pork chops or veal. Use it at room temperature for bruschetta, or stir it into warm egg noodles for a great dish. For special breakfast, top scrambled eggs with it, or even use it in an omelet.
Although this lovely relish can be easily made at home, you can buy it ready made, too. Find it on the internet, at fancy food supply shops or possibly a local Italian food store. Give it as a gift to mushroom lovers or those who like to try new flavors.
If mushrooms are a food that you enjoy, take a step up to this decadent accompaniment. You will be amazed at how the wine and garlic accent the brown flavor of the truffles. Any meal will be enhanced by it, whether you serve it at a relaxing dinner alone with a loved one, or treat a group of friends to this wonderful eating experience.
Tartufata used to be a treat that you could only enjoy if you went to Italy, but things have changed. Today we have the luxury of ordering gourmet ingredients anytime we want them. How fortunate for us that now we can include it in our menus on a regular basis.
