Would you know a ‘truffle’ if you saw one? You may well be thinking of a certain chocolate treat with a squidgy centre (easily done), but we have a very different sort of truffle in mind. The truffle in question is, according to aficionados, every bit as delicious, if not more so, than the chocolaty one you’re familiar with! Yes really. Often called ‘the diamond of the kitchen’ in the culinary world due to its exquisite taste and extremely-high value, the truffle is a rare, difficult to find and keenly sought-after type of mushroom that grows deep-underground, often hidden in forests. The very best truffles are the black and white varieties found in Europe. Fans of this delicacy use it sparingly to add flavour to a wide variety of meals. Used by credible chefs in fine dining establishments, this coveted item is flown in specially to take pride of place on the most renowned tables around the world.
Now we might not be Michelin-starred chefs, but we do know a thing or two about the finer things in life, especially when it comes to food! We are therefore thrilled to bring you a marvellous offer from Gourmet Depot HK, a food and wine warehouse for connoisseurs, on Plantin Truffle products.

Plantin’s ‘Black Truffle Paste’ is unique and incomparable on the market because it’s pure truffle paste. At present, no other brands provide this product. The paste is extremely dense and powerful, allowing you to use 3-4 times less than you would normally need to when using a similar product. Black truffle paste is prominent in Western fine-dining restaurants but also found in top Chinese restaurants within delicious dim sum. It has a long-shelf life and can be used in many different recipes. Their ‘White Truffle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil’ will provide a unique and intense flavour to your many culinary creations. The subtle flavour of the truffle is infused into the oil and the product is very easy to use whilst cooking. Just a few drops of Plantin Truffle Oil are enough to perfume a variety of dishes such as pasta, risotto, salad and even mashed potato.
