My Favorite Truffle Dishes in Chianti

June 4, 2018

48 Hours Spent Eating Truffles in the Chianti Region. 

I consumed pasta, eggs, oils, chocolate, bread and candy with truffles.

Here are three of my favorites:


1. Mezzulune di ricotta e tartufo al tartufo fresco

 La Cantinetta di Rignano Ristorante

 Loc. Rignano

 Greve in Chianti

 Beautiful little pasta pouches of ricotta and fresh truffle cream with shaved truffles on top.Buonissimo!


2. Ravioli with creamy truffle sauce sprinkled with freshly grated truffle

    This is a half portion. Light, delicate and bite size. I recommend nor sharing, it's so good.

 La Taverna Ristorante

 at Castello del Nero

 Strada Spicciano n.7

 Tavernelle Val di Pesa

 An outdoor restaurant in the historic home of a Florentine noble family, which is now a 5 star hotel.

 Beautiful views of the Chianti hills and vineyards surrounding the property. Bellissimo !

3. Lasagne with truffle and porcini mushrooms

Tenuta Torciano Winery and Restaurant

Via Crocetta 18


Truffle hunting, wine tasting and lunch.

This is a special recipe from Grandma Silvana, the lovely chef at Tenuta Torciano, a family run winery and restaurant.

It is made with layers of cheese,porcini mushrooms,béchamel and truffle oil with fresh shaved truffles on top.

Even better with their wines !

 Ciao for now
