Little Things Mean A Lot: Black Truffle Butter


Aux Delices Des Bois Black Truffle Butter

We’ve all been asked “what’s the one food item you cannot live without?”

Hmmm… I’m always stumped on this one.

Even though I am a “foodie”, my refrigerator doesn’t show that. There’s a lemon cucumber, some udon noodles from Trader Joe’s and expired mongolian beef (note to self: throw that out before going to NYC Thursday…).

Oddly enough, this Black Truffle Butter was given to me as a house warming present from my ex-boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend. I was a little concerned that it may have GHB, rat poison or some kind of butter demon in it. I’m happy to report I am not dead and have eaten it many times since.

I apply to my toast, scramble it in my eggs and melt it on top of my pasta. It can dress up any food item beautifully. So I think this is my “cannot live without” item.


Actress and Founder of Girls on Food: I was born and raised in the suburbs of Sacramento, California. I grew up a typical “McDonald’s kid”. I was very picky about what I ate and refused to try new foods. No fun, I know. My Mom started taking me on trips to Europe when I was a teenager and that’s when my palate for finer foods began to develop. Some of my most memorable favorite meals include Veal Bolognese in Rome, Gyros in Athens, Paella in Lisbon and Duck L’Orange in Paris. While this helped me grow out of a fast food phase, I still eat out quite a bit. I know I should be at home cooking, but I love dining out. I started working in restaurants in various front of the house positions at age 15. Since my start, I’ve worked in every casual restaurant setting you can think of: a teriyaki stand, brewery, sushi nightclub, trendy Mexican, family-style Italian, American diner, pizza parlor and even a BLT themed food truck. I can't help but notice that many of the LA food bloggers don't have any sort of background working in a restaurant. A lot of my perspective on food and dining out comes from my years of experience in the biz. Since starting this blog, I have shot appearances on a couple of cooking competition shows as a taster (including MasterChef Junior and another upcoming show). We have also started producing a Youtube Channel.
