I have a secret obsession with truffle at the moment… well perhaps it’s not that much of a secret, as just an outright obsession.  I can’t get enough of that alluring, intoxicating fungi.

So when I saw Daisy from “Never Too Sweet” eating up all of the Melbourne mushrooms during the “Mushroom Mania” promotion, I decided I needed to jump on this band wagon and contribute my favourite mushroom and truffle recipe.

It’s so quick, easy and nutritious! The addition of balsamic vinegar to the pate and a lovely film of quality truffle oil to the top lifts this recipe to sublime.

  15. This looks delicious! Would love to make it as a starter for a dinner party. How many servings does this recipe make? And for how long can you keep this in the fridge? Thank you! O

    • Hi Olivia, from memory it made two bowls of pate about the size of a large rice bowl. I used one bowl for a party and covered the second in truffle oil and glad wrap and stored it in the fridge. I then used it one week later. I’m not sure how much longer it would have kept for?
