Has anyone ever seen truffle oil for sale in Winnipeg? It's mentioned in enough restaurant reviews so they must get it someplace.

I believe that I bought some at Sobey's. It's pretty expensive I must warn you.

Made a couple of phone calls. Sobey's carries it but doesn't have any at the moment. La Grotta (Taylor @ Waverly) does have one bottle and it is expensive ($16 for 100 ml). Thanks, guys.
Here's the recipe I want to try:
Potato and Goat Cheese Pierogies with Caramelized Onions and Truffle Creme Fraiche
Dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp canola oil
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup warm water
1 egg, beaten w/fork
Method:
Combine flour, salt and baking powder in bowl and mix well. Add wet ingredients and knead by hand or with dough hook in a kitchen aid for 8-10 minutes.
Potato Filling for Pierogi:
2 large Idaho potato (peel, boil, hand mash, dry in oven, cool)
3/4 cup softened goat cheese
1 small red onion, minced and sauteed
1 tsp chopped chives
2 ounces heavy cream
salt and pepper
Method:
Mix above ingredients except heavy cream. Add cream as needed to adjust consistency. (It should have the feel of stiff mashed potatoes).
Caramelized onions:
One onion sliced and cooked very slow over low heat with 3 tbsp butter. Season with salt, pepper and chopped thyme.
Truffle creme fraiche:
1 cup creme fraiche
1 tbsp white truffle oil
1 tsp chopped black truffle pieces (optional)
salt and pepper
Method:
Roll dough into 1/8-inch sheets and then cut 2-inch circles out of that. Place heaping tbsp of filling onto each circle and fold into half-moon shape. Seal with beaten egg.
To serve, gently saute pierogies in olive oil, top with onions & creme fraiche.
Nothing like the perogies that my Grandmother and Mother used to make but if they were still alive I'm sure they'd like to have a go at this.

Oooh! Pick me!! I know where there is oodles of truffle oil, Fred.
Go to GJ Andrews on Academy Road (Academy/Oak). They have several varieties in several sizes on the back counter where the deli meat/butcher is.

Also? That recipe made me drool.

I hate the smell of truffles...
They have hounds digging them up in Istria, the peninsula just south from here.
We have truffles and oil selling here in almost every grocery store.

From this, we can conclude that Electrician, is not, in fact, a truffle hunting boar.
