Like many food lovers, I take my sauces very seriously. Whether I'm smothering a burger bun or topping a bowl of pasta, the right sauce has the power to make or break any meal.
That’s exactly why I was so skeptical of Truff, a line of truffle oil-laced hot sauce I stumbled upon on Amazon. I love hot sauce and, believe me, I love anything truffle. But mixed together? I was nervous it’d be something that would sound good in theory, but wouldn’t hold up to all its promises in reality. But when I noticed Truff's sauces graced Oprah’s 2019 Favorite Things list, I took a leap of faith and added it to my e-cart. (I mean, if it’s good enough for Oprah...)
When I finally gave TRUFF’s White Truffle Hot Sauce a try, I realized my hesitations were left completely unfounded. Let’s get one thing straight: This isn’t your typical buffalo chicken dip hot sauce. Thicker than a traditional hot sauce, it’s a creamy (but not too creamy) concoction with a subtle truffle flavor and a hint of heat. Unlike many sauces — which pile on the flavor — Truff errs on the side of subtly, creating a thoughtful blend of ripe chili peppers, organic agave nectar, white truffle and organic coriander.
It’s that level of subtly that makes it possible to add two big flavor profiles — umami and spicy — into one surprisingly delicious bottle. Today, I use this sauce on everything simply because it works with anything. Chunks of bread, scrambled eggs, lean proteins, vegetables, macaroni and cheese — I could go on. Whether you dip or drizzle, this sauce is the perfect pairing for virtually any savory recipe you can think of.
Oh, and did I mention Truff has three different options? While the white truffle sauce is the tamest of the bunch, Truff’s black truffle sauce will kick your dishes up a few notches. And if you can’t resist the heat, Truff’s Hotter Sauce boasts jalapeno. But no matter which one you pick, one thing’s for sure: This brand deserves a spot in your fridge.
