I love all things Tartufo, Truffle. The earthy, savory notes of truffles can elevate a dish to a whole other level of umami heaven, especially popcorn. I like to make this Truffle Popcorn to serve during the cocktail hour. The salty, woody, slightly sweet flavors pair perfectly with a glass of robust red wine like Le Senate Cacinello which is a beautifully balanced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot.
To make this vegan friendly use a non-dairy butter, I like Miyokos, or EVOO.
