When the folks at Groupon contacted me and provided me with today’s Groupon ($20 for $40 at iGourmet.com) to check out iGourmet, my first thought was “You complete me”. Do they know about my cheese obsession? Is it that obvious? For a food blogger, a Groupon to iGourmet is like being a kid in a candy store. When I saw their assortment of fine cheeses, butter, charcuterie, chocolate, olive oils, and meats, I was so excited, I didn’t know what to do. It is generally accepted that I am a food snob, so I thought…what would a food snob do? Clearly, I searched for anything and everything truffles: White Truffle Oil, Black Truffle Butter, Black Truffle Pecorino, so many delicious options from which to choose. For Thanksgiving last year, I spent more on truffle butter and truffle oil than I did on the turkey. I smeared copious amounts of truffle butter under the skin of the turkey, and I don’t think anyone in my family would disagree that it was the best turkey anyone in my family had ever had. For a low carb dish, I like to drizzle truffle oil over mashed cauliflower. I actually prefer it over mashed potatoes. Another great option is to pick up some cheese to complement what is in season. How about some mozzarella to serve with heirloom tomatoes? Perhaps ricotta salata to serve with sautéed peaches and honey?
