Ginny just posted this recipe on her plate diary and we have to say it looks heavenly. We suspect this would be equally good as a spread in a roast beef sandwich, too. If you visit TruffleZone, please let them know you heard about them from us.

Here's Ginny's recipe for the cheese dip:
1 block of cream cheese, softened
3 cloves of garlic, pressed
1 shallot, minced
3 white truffles, finely minced
salt, pepper, and rice vinegar to taste
Mix everything together, adjust seasoning (I like my dip heavy on the black pepper, garlic, and truffle) and let it sit for a couple hours in the fridge. I put it in a dish lined with plastic wrap and unmolded it on the plate. It's really good with Stacy's pita chips. (Hopefully the movie we plan to watch will be just as good!)
You can get the white truffles at www.trufflezone.com They're not that outrageously expensive and soooo worth it. The TruffleZone people have been at the Beaverton farmers market in the past, and I'm hoping they'll be there again this year.
