"Dirfys" company from Northern Evia has created an extra virgin olive oil, aromatized with the delicate aroma of the rare white truffle - Tuber magnatum. Wild growing Greek truffle is considered to be of excellent quality and one of the best truffles in the world. This rare mushroom is characterized by its unique aroma, its special flavour and its high nutritional value. A few drops are enough to make pasta dishes, risottos, frumenty soup, mashed potatoes or even a grilled steak or a fillet steak, prepared in a frying pan, stand out. The truffle in Greece is known since antiquity under the name "'Idnon". It was very much sought after for its pharmaceutical and aphrodisiac qualities and for its wonderful flavour and aroma. It is not a surprising fact, that a great many ancient poets and writers were inspired by it. Pliny considered truffles as "marvels of nature", while Porfyry called them "children of the gods".
