Fromage Truffe Jarre Noire (P)
(Imported Cheeses: France)
An exceptional marriage of flavors, in an elegant presentation. Sweet, savory, milky sheep cheese is marinated in olive oil and black truffles; the latter provides distinct earthy, garlicky notes to the cheese. While the cheese and truffles are the main focus of this item, one should not overlook the oil itself, which has absorbed the flavors of the cheese and the truffles -- mostly the truffles, in fact -- and can be used to enhance all sorts of dishes, or simply pour the oil into a small dish and dip bread into it. High-end retailers and restauranteurs will do well with this item, and it is guaranteed to make a wonderful addition to the most sophisticated gift basket.
