Craig, beautiful work on your work table. I think you inspired me to follow your footsteps for my work table. Excellent pies as usual!
Chau, truffle oil is 100% devoid of actual truffles. It is a synthetic product using olive oil or other types of oil infused with a compound that is meant to resemble the flavor of truffles. Think of it as similar to perfume-making or artificial flavoring. I still don't even know why it costs so much money. It has its specific uses though where it shines through quite well (i.e. Craig's mushroom pie, truffle fries, etc.) and where real truffles is just not practical.
