It’s the perfect season to experience white truffles. Cucina celebrates the arrival of highly coveted white truffles from Piedmont, Italy. A special culinary engagement has been designed by Chef Andrea Delzanno, showcasing six exquisite white truffle dishes from 22 October to 10 January 2020.
The unique aroma and taste of white truffles – dubbed the ‘White Diamond of the Dining Table’ – are cherished by gastronomes around the world. Chef Andrea recommends Taiyouran Scrambled Egg on Toasted Bread with Seared Hokkaido Scallops and White Truffle (HK$428), a home-style favourite from the Piedmont region, enhanced by the addition of plump, juicy Hokkaido scallops and Taiyouran egg.
The smooth and savoury indulgence of Handmade Tagliolini with Butter, Parmigiano Cheese and White Truffle (HK$498) is Chef Andrea’s personal favourite, with its fresh handmade pasta taking diners on a sensorial ride through its simple, sublime flavours.
White Truffle Ice Cream with Hazelnut Sponge and Truffle Mascarpone ($288) finishes off the meal on a memorable sweet note. “This is a very special dessert with the ice cream is full of the aroma of white truffle. Again, simple but elegant,” says Chef Andrea.
Other superb white truffle dishes on Cucina’s special menu include Potato Flan with Soft-boiled Egg with Cheese Fondue and Shaved White Truffle (HK$388), Risotto with Mascarpone Cheese, Seared Scampi Tail and Shaved White Truffle (HK$498) and Roasted Italian Veal Chop with Brussel Sprouts, Chestnut Puree and White Truffle (HK$588).
