Real Truffle Oil – a review of Oregon White Truffle Oil
Some say truffles are the ultimate aphrodisiac for women. Not only are they delicious little nuggets of luxury, but the scent of truffles also replicates that of a male pheromone. That’s why we’re featuring this one-of-a-kind, real truffle oil. Oregon White Truffle Oil was the first natural truffle oil produced in the United States made with real truffle. And it’s the tastiest truffle oil I’ve ever tried.
A chef-made truffle oil from Oregon
The oil was created by Oregon resident Chef Jack Czarnecki, a leading American expert on mushrooms and truffles. (Full disclosure, I’ve known Czarnecki personally since I was a child.)
Czarnecki and his son Stefan hunt for many of the truffles used in the oil themselves. In addition to this subtly flavored and incredibly tasty white truffle oil, they make a black truffle oil with real truffles using Oregon black truffles.
But if you want to try the black truffle oil you have to be fast. An incredibly popular gourmet product, it’s often sold out. So if you ever see it for sale, grab some.
How is it made?
The gourmet oils are made from real, wild Oregon truffles in a base of high-quality olive oil base. Fresh Oregon truffle pieces are infused in the oil to create the oil’s unique and delicious flavor.
What makes this real truffle oil so remarkable is that there are zero added aromas or flavorings. This is an all-natural, authentic truffle oil made from American truffles.

How does Oregon White Truffle Oil taste?
The flavor of Oregon White Truffle Oil is mellow, earthy and irresistible. It is liquid truffle essence. Its flavor is far more subtle, smooth and round than most truffle oils, which are made of synthetic truffle. Make no mistake, this oil, made from wild Oregon truffles, is totally unique and of the highest quality. It is truly one of the most incredible truffle products you can buy.
So if you’re used to most truffle oils, (the kind some experts call fake truffle oils), you might be shocked at first by the subtlety of the flavor of real truffle oil. But then you get the full force of natural truffle on the finish and you will find yourself craving this one-of-a-kind oil.
How to serve this finishing oil
Oregon White Truffle Oil is designed to be used as a finishing oil. Czarnecki recommends a variety of uses for his oil, including blending with butter to make a truffle-scented spread. (That’s one of my favorite ways to use it and helps make it last.)
The chef also recommends using this aphrodisiac oil to finish risottos or enhance any cream sauce. It’s also great with pasta. In addition, the aromatic oil adds a distinct, earthy note when drizzled over carpaccio. I recommend using a drizzle on top of this Italian Sausage and Broccolini recipe for a date night dinner with a little extra romance. Or try this recipe for Salmon Cakes with White Truffle Mayonnaise.
Other serving ideas include adding it to your next cheese plate or grazing board. Try drizzling the oil over triple cream cheeses. (Did you know that cheese is an aphrodisiac?)
For date night
Lastly, you can make it a part of a date night movie night. Just stream your favorite rom-com and pop up some popcorn. Toss the hot popcorn with a touch of this sexy oil instead of butter. Add a pinch of salt and prepare yourself for an aphrodisiac experience. Of course, if you really love truffles, you can just drizzle it over your lover’s curves and start licking.
