For centuries, Europe has valued the culinary excellence of truffles, utilizing them as delicacies, condiments and even aphrodisiacs. Now, one family-owned company in Italy has incorporated white truffle into a balsamic vinegar mousse, crafting a smooth, decadent ingredient you can use in a multitude of different ways.
The balsamic vinegar was made using grapes grown in the foothills of Northern Italy, in a microclimate conducive to high quality production: summer heat helps oxidation and evaporation of the vinegar, while crisp winters favor decantation and limpidity. This has been combined with soy flour, while air bubbles give it a light and fluffy texture. The pivotal component, however, is white truffle, which balances the mousse with bittersweet notes. White truffle is famed for its aroma, and it lends this mousse a fragrant and natural scent that’s impossible to emulate. Finally, the product is packaged in a slender aerosol can that will look elegant on your kitchen shelf.
The best thing about this mousse is its versatility. It can be used to decorate and enhance almost any dish, whether it be a fish, meat, vegetable or pasta-based main, or a smaller appetizer, hors d’oeuvre or snack. Whatever you use it for, it’s sure to add charm and originality to your cooking.
Our white truffle mousse was created by Terra Del Tuono, an Italian family-run business whose mission is to produce top quality balsamic vinegar of Modena. By using traditional methods passed down generation to generation, and by taking advantage of the unique changing seasons of northern Italy, they formulate balsamic vinegar products that are innovative, sophisticated, and imbued with the flavors of nature.
