Something truly amazing happens when you mix the comforting classic that is mac 'n' cheese with the luxurious flavour of truffle. Just a small amount of our truffle-infused oil is enough to give a beautifully earthy note. Best of all, this dish is a breeze to make and will leave you truf-full and satisfied!
