What did you eat last night for dinner? - Page 1806

post #27076 of 27526
Love serious eats. Got his book a month or so ago, and have been cooking out of it at least once a week

Had a bunch of things last night and many of them had truffles. Only took two pics as things were hopping.

First is octopus with scallop:




Seared foie with black truffles:




Some other items were eggs in puff pastry with truffles, a cacio e pepe with truffles, and some other treats. Here's the truffle we ate:

What does a truffle actually taste like?
post #27080 of 27526
It's not just the taste it's the aroma too. The aroma of a fresh truffle being shaved can fill a room. It's a really pungent, funky, damp organic earthy smell that is highly enjoyable. The taste is also an intense earthy flavour with components like garlic and mushrooms. It's amazing how a simple dish, like that pasta with pepper, becomes sublime with some truffles shaved onto it.

This apparently was a bigger hit at the house than in the dinner thread. Had a request to make this again for tonight's dinner. drool.gif

I love Truffled eggs either as fried omelets and soufflés with goats cheese. When the season arrives here in Canberra I'll buy at the farmers market on a Saturday put it with the eggs for 48 hours then mainly use the truffle in a Mushroom risotto on a Monday night. A new mushroom stall holder has set and has a good selection of shiitake, oyster, king brown, chestnut and black fungus amongst others. Roll on May.

Burgundy truffles will be in season. They are better than summer truffles, but not as good as winter.

Speaking of which, I went to The Modern last night. one dish was a black truffle tortellini. Damn fine. All in, i'd say it was a hair less great than EMP, but still really great. Reasonably good value too for what you get (a lot). And a nice wine list that does not insult the diner on every page.

The Modern is great. Try it for lunch one day. The setting is really enjoyable with all the natural light and the glass walls on the sculpture garden
