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
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
