I was introduced to a new ingredient this week when a friend brought round some ‘Truffle Sweetness’ as an accompaniment to some mighty fine cheese. 20130606-210547.jpg

 

This honey with shavings of white truffle through it was unlike anything I have eaten before: earthy, intensely sweet and savoury at the same time and perfect with some vintage Comte (both from La Cave a Fromage in Hove).
