new year is coming and i know you want to start the new year very special, so i prepared a series of special and festive recipes, a little more exclusive, to help create a dream atmosphere.
today we get acquainted with the "diamond" of the luxury cuisine, a fine ingredient, expensive and highly perfumed, the black truffle. black truffles are ideal for luxurious recipes; their mere presence ennobles any preparation. although is used a small amount, it is sufficient because it flavors quickly the preparations.
we make today a special gasket, mashed potatoes with black truffles straciatella. the puree's creamy taste highlights the black truffles, which are to be found festive, waiting to be enjoyed.
a royal flavor, a sensory experience, exclusively for special moments!
ingredients (for 2 persons):
-4 medium potatoes
-1 black truffle (and the liquid from the jar)
clean, wash and cut the potatoes into cubes. boil in salted water. boil until very soft and very easy to stick a fork in them.
meanwhile, we prepare the delicious black truffle. this is how it looks like when we get it out of the jar:
scrape half of the truffle on the small grate and a cut half into cubes. it’s simple and fast :)
drain the boiled potatoes, put them in a bowl. pour liquid from the jar with truffles, to mix well the flavors.
then add a tablespoon of butter and 2-3 tablespoons of liquid cream.
mix well. then add the grated truffle.
mix with a spoon until smooth.
put it in the middle of a large plate (using a metal ring) and decorate with remaining truffle bits.
serve hot, as garnish to a delicious veal fillet (with truffles, of course :) ).
this is a delight recipe, great for anniversaries, romantic dinners or festive menus.
