Problem with article[edit]

This article looks just like a denunciation of the "problems" truffle oils may have. How about some info on actual truffle oils? The Ogre (talk) 14:11, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Gordon Ramsey, Master Chef 6Jun2011, said 'truffle oil' is a synthetic made by perfumeries, and called 'truffle oil' crap and seeing it on a menu reason to leave a restaurant. SCrawford2 (talk) 00:43, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I added a cited viewpoint from Gordon Ramsay that was published in a column piece of the LA Times. Though this doesn't support The Ogre's viewpoint, I think a culinary master's viewpoint is definitely worth mentioning.Hasteur (talk) 18:23, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

You should also consider that the picture you're using is of Black Truffle Infused Oil, not the White Truffle Oil that Ramsay hates so much. In fact he regularly uses quality Black Truffle Oil. Artratt (talk) 18:44, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Clarified that Ramsay was specifically discussing white truffle oil, per the references article, though I'm still not sure that opinions, even of notable chefs, are appropriate in an encyclopedia article. Jlahorn (talk) 16:43, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

I think Gordon Ramsey's opinion is absolutely irrelevant. I'm sure he has an opinion on many ingredients, but I don't think it's appropriate to include it with the exception of his own bio article. POV? Thx1200 (talk) 05:43, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

As an award winning chef (Michelin Stars), having opened many restaurants, and also being a reality TV personality does grant him the authority to speak as to the quality of ingredients. As he works in an industry with truffles frequently he is very likely to have a informed viewpoint on truffles and their usage. When some restaurants are pushing white truffle oil fries as a "Premium" item I think that the dissenting viewpoint is actually quite important, Especially when it's confirmed by two other luminaries in the field. Hasteur (talk) 10:47, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
So anytime he (or another celebrity chef) opines on an ingredient, it belongs as an entry in an encyclopedia article? Thx1200 (talk) 18:08, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Real Truffle Oil?[edit]

Removing this until someone can cite what exactly "real" truffle oil is. (talk) 13:02, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I would assume it's oil made with actual truffle instead of a chemical. Based on the ingredient list, I assume something like this would qualify. (?) TheHYPO (talk) 02:37, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
