Truffle Fries are NOTHING like Chocolate Truffles

Truffle Fries are NOTHING like Chocolate Truffles

To a simple beach bum like myself, my initial thought is “eeewww.”  I’m thinking chocolate but I really had no clue!  Truffle Fries are cooked with infused truffle oil and NOT chocolate.

Truffle Fries is a gourmet side dish found in some of the nicer restaurants in Encinitas.  Besides chocolate, Chef Dave says, “Truffles are a rare, edible, and delicate type of spore.”  In beach bum terms, spores are similar to a mushroom that grows underground.

Truffles “grow mainly in France, Italy, Croatia, and Slovenia; truffles are also collected in the United States in Oregon and Washington. Truffles grow underground among the roots of oak, elm, chestnut, pine, and willow trees where they form a symbiotic relationship with their environment. Duplicating these conditions for growing truffles commercially is not feasible or cost-effective on a wide scale, hence their high price.”

Truffles are such a delicacy that a famed 18th century French gastronome , Brillat-Savarin, called these truffles “The Diamond of the Kitchen”.

Chef Dave's infused Truffle oil is made from rare, edible spore.

Since learning that Truffle Fries are cooked with infused truffle oil and NOT chocolate, my “eeewww” quickly turned into a YUUUMMM!!!  “What a treat!!!”

Breakfast is Served on the Beach

Breakfast is Served on the Beach

“Come & Get It!!!” Breakfast is served on the beach at Seaside Reef by Dave De Jour Street Food. The aroma of sizzling sausage and egg in Chef Dave’s Breakfast bowl is calling. The fog is dissipating. And music will soon fill the air at the The Rob Machado Surf Experience and Green Expo in Cardiff.

It’s the last day of the Expo and there are plenty of Food and Fun for everyone. There will be Live Music, Beer Garden, Environmentally Friendly Exhibits, and The King & Queen of the Reef from the surf contest will be crowned today.

I’m heading down to get some grub!!!
