What is Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning?
When assessing our options for gourmet seasonings, we noticed an obvious hole: we’re not utilizing truffles enough! We sought to remedy this immediately. Introducing the newest in our line of canisters: Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning.
Our Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning is a savory blend of Parmesan cheese and Italian black truffles, balanced with earthy mushrooms, sweet fennel, and salt. It’s the perfect finishing seasoning for just about anything: think soups, salads, fries, eggs, chicken, vegetables, savory pastries, and just about anything else you’d eat.
What does Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning taste like?
This well-balanced seasoning is a blend of cheesy, umami, herby, and sweet notes. Italian black truffles are known for their rich, nutty, savory flavor. We added these truffles to Parmesan cheese for a creamy base. Truffles are classically paired with mushrooms to bring out their earthiness and onions to underline their sweetness, so we blended those in as well. Finished with some herby fennel and parsley for freshness, Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning hits all the flavor notes you crave.
What other flavors pair well with Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning?
Traditionally, Italian black truffles are paired with classic dishes like pasta, risotto, and steak. Since Italian black truffles are so rich and savory, a little goes a long way. Truffles are best when used as to finish a dish or cooked with low heat–adding too much heat can eliminate some of their more delicate flavor notes. We love putting our Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning on just about anything: sprinkle on hard-boiled eggs for a savory snack, season any roasted vegetable (especially potatoes!), add to a bowl of buttered popcorn, or mix into butter for a simple sauce for steak, chicken, or any other protein. It’s hard to go wrong!
How to use Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning?
Since the flavor of Italian black truffles is so delicate, for best truffle flavor we recommend using Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning as a finishing sprinkle before serving. A little heat, like the residual heat from fresh-cooked pasta or risotto, can enhance the flavor of Italian black truffles. If you add Black Truffle Parmesan Seasoning into a dish while it’s cooking, we recommend adding a little more at the end to maintain that distinctive truffle flavor.
