Unfold puff pastry sheets and place on two large baking sheets on parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Press to flatten and shape and score a ½ -inch border around the edges with a knife.

Peel, seed and slice pumpkin and slice the pear. Toss together in a mixing bowl with 4 teaspoons of Seven Barrels Meyer Lemon olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Sprinkle shredded cheese on to the prepared pastry sheet in a single layer, then spread pumpkin and pear mixture evenly on top, leaving a ½ inch border around the edges.

Bake each tart for 20 minutes until the pastry is golden brown and cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.

Top the tarts with arugula leaves, blue cheese and pomegranate seeds. Drizzle with additional teaspoon of Seven Barrels Meyer Lemon olive oil, and Seven Barrels Pomegranate Balsamic vinegar. Season tart with salt and pepper to taste.

Cut tarts into 5-6 squares or wedges and serve warm.

Slipper-clad and blanket-cloaked.

It’s winter.

But there’s no reason not to celebrate while you hibernate! So break out Seven Barrels’ new addition, White Truffle Oil and get fancy while still staying comfy. It’s the best of both worlds! And every special occasion calls for a diamond. Well, “the diamond of the kitchen,” as French gourmet Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once called truffles. Try your diamond on for size with this refreshing Citrus Salad with Arugula and Truffle Lemon Dressing. Spicy arugula, thirst-quenching citrus, fresh mint leaves, and roasted pistachios—an unexpected group—unite in this salad for this classy affair. This gourmet dish makes sticking to your New Year’s resolution to get healthy a veritable joy.

And eating for joy is an important element of good health! Pigs unearth truffles and truffles unearth the pig in all of us—foodies, we’re owning that term with deep love! We highly recommend pigging out with this twist on the ultimate comfort food: Truffle Mac & Cheese. This dish ties together rich gruyère, sharp cheddar, and silky fontina cheese with Seven Barrels Truffle Oil, salty pancetta, and perfectly toasted bread crumbs. We’re obsessed.

Another obsession of ours? Crispy Smashed Truffle Potatoes. We’re taking a stand and declaring you haven’t had mashed potatoes until you’ve tasted this mouth-watering dish—they’re somehow crispy and creamy. A simple blend of Seven Barrels White Truffle Oil, Seven Barrels Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fresh parsley, and sea salt is enough to make you want this dish as an entrée—forget sides!

And in the vein of versatility, here’s a recipe to satisfy a craving of any size—meal, side, or snack: White Bean Hummus with Truffle Oil. A European take on a Middle Eastern classic, this dish subs the hearty cannellini for the traditional chickpea, and swirls in Seven Barrels Miller’s Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Seven Barrels Meyer Lemon Olive Oil, and Seven Barrels White Truffle Oil. Serve with warm toasted pita, crisp crackers, or fresh veggies—and rest assured: you’re serving your soul.
