Q: For a friend's upcoming birthday I bought her a bottle of white truffle oil, something she's been dying to try but hesitant to splurge on. I'd like to get her some ingredients to go with the oil. How do you guys recommend showcasing truffle oil, especially for a truffle oil virgin?

Editor: Sarah, a few ideas: Good popcorn, like an heirloom variety from Rancho Gordo, some white beans for making truffled bean spread, a bunch of asparagus to make truffled asparagus, and perhaps a little sack of good potatoes.
Readers, what else would you suggest?
