“White truffles and truffle oil are very strong in flavor, much more than black truffles, but they have a great flavor if used with the right balance. We dilute our truffle oil 50% with olive oil or canola oil to help tone down the flavor to an approachable level. Like soy sauce, the true complexity of white truffle oil blooms when diluted.” – Will Rush
