Truffle hamper

Luxury Truffle & Oil hamper.

I know nothing better then standing in the kitchen with a nice glass of wine and a selection of mouthwatering ingredients to get the imagination running.

So here is a selection of some of my favourite truffle products and oil.

Many people would say that there is no substitute for fresh produce, the pungent aroma of earthy fungus can’t be beaten. I would partly agree. But who can have a box of truffles in the fridge at a whim. Here is where this little basket of goodies comes into it’s own. Not only do you have the products when you need them, but also in various stages of preparation: Minced, sliced, in butter/oil or with Porcini mushrooms. Lovely!!

In march we are offering this lovely hamper for only £89.00 so there is no reason to wait.

Caviar classic London Truffle Month.

AS November is Truffle Month here a Caviar Classic London we are serving up

Risotto with black truffle.

With our Black and White winter truffles there is a budget to fit every purse.

If you haven’t tried truffles yet then what are you waiting for? These pungent earth mushrooms will liven up your food and bring excitement back to cooking.

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a wide, high-sided pan over a very low heat. Peel the onion and chop it finely. If your onion is larger than a golf ball, you will only need half of it.

  2. Add the onion to the pan and cook to soften it in the butter, stirring from time to time, so that it does not colour but instead becomes translucent and silky.

  3. Stir in the rice, folding the grains over briefly in the butter with a wooden spoon.

  4. Pour in the wine or vermouth and let it bubble down until the liquid has pretty much disappeared.

  5. Add a large ladleful of hot stock, turn the heat up a bit, then cook until the liquid has almost disappeared. Continue adding the stock as it boils down to almost nothing. Stir the rice often.

  6. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper and add the lemon zest and juice. Continue cooking until the rice is creamy but has a little bite left in it.

  7. Add parmesan, to taste, and stir well.

  8. To serve, spoon the risotto into a serving dish and shave the truffle over the top. Serve immediately.
