About TUFO Sauce
TUFO is derived from the Italian word "Tartufo" meaning "Truffle".
Who does not love the truffle-infused dishes in Italy and France, and or hearty grilled food, such as American barbecue dinners with seasoned meats, potatoes and above all, a smokey Texas Beef Brisket or New York Strip Steak (aka Entrecote).
Back in 2020 it occurred to me that I had never come across a Sauce that comes laden with truffle scents and fragrance, that can hold its own when drizzled over barbecued meat. The combination of chili spice (i.e. heat) and truffle is also uncommon - but in our kitchen we made it work.
And so the TUFO Truffle Hot Sauce was born. A creamy, well-seasoned truffle sauce, that also packs some chili heat.
Time to Indulge!
Truffles are a type of edible fungi known for their
unique and highly sought-after flavor. They grow underground, typically near the roots of trees, and are commonly found in forests in Europe and North America. Truffles are considered a delicacy and are highly prized in the culinary world for their distinct, earthy flavor. There are many different types of truffles, including the highly sought-after white truffle from Italy and the black truffle from France. These delicacies can be quite expensive, with prices for high-quality truffles reaching hundreds or even thousands of dollars per pound.
Truffles are typically harvested using trained pigs or dogs, who are able to locate the truffles using their keen sense of smell. Once harvested, truffles are often used in high-end cuisine, where they are shaved over dishes to add a rich, earthy flavor. In addition to their culinary use, truffles are also prized for their perceived health benefits, as they are a good source of fiber and protein.
In addition to their delicious flavor, truffles are also known for their unique aroma, which is often described as "musky" or "earthy." This aroma is caused by the truffle's high concentration of volatile compounds, which are released when the truffle is cut or shaved.
Overall, truffles are a highly prized delicacy in the culinary world, known for their unique flavor and aroma. Whether shaved over a dish or enjoyed on their own, truffles are a treat for the senses.
