White Truffle Garlic Aioli

We received lots of great wedding gifts... one of my favorite came from a co-worker.  She gave me this really cool oil/vinegar holder with dispensers... but along with it came a Herbs de Provence olive oil, a white balsamic vinegar and ...... wait for it....   a bottle of white truffle oil!!!  YUM!!  So, of course, my first thought, was to make an aioli.  Now, one thing I learned, you can use too much truffle oil.  The first batch I made was over powered by the oil and was almost inedible.... almost :).  But, never fear, I don't like to give up when it comes to sauces, so I tried again, and the next time I nailed it!  I have made this sauce quite a few times since.. I mean it goes so well with the one thing I have pregnancy cravings for - FRENCH FRIES!!!   Oh yes, I haven't craved too many things, but fries... oh my gosh, I can't seem to get enough of them.  I have done very well with not going over board, and when I have do have the, more times than not I bake them at home, so they are a little better for me... but I guess if you are dredging them in this sauce, it sort of wipes that out, huh?  Oh well... it's worth it!!

An aioli was your first thought - I'm in shock :-)

Now that was a perfect wedding gift! And you've done it again with the tasty sauce thang! And it's always fun to hear what a pregnant lady is craving--it could be a lot worse than french fries, so don't you worry about it!

First of all, congratulations on the pregnancy! :) now you mentioned it, I am too craving for French fries and I'm not pregnant and not ever will.
The aioli is awesome. I love white truffle oil. Use it a lot with pasta or risotto. yum.

I got a batch of white truffle oil and found it can really overpower a potato dish. Boy was that strong, lol.

Turns out most white truffle oil in the US doesn't really come from truffles, they just use a chemical that resembles or is found in truffles. Kind of like the issue of olive oil misbranding. I don't know who to trust anymore, ha ha.
