Sud Forno Truffle Meal (November 2020)
We are back this week with a new box from Sud Forno's Executive Chef Giovanna Alonzi! It's November and that means one thing...truffle season! This week's meal box is all about truffle. Truffle on your pasta, truffle on your sous vide eggs, and yes, truffle even on your chocolate cake! If you would like to upgrade to white truffle instead (market price) or add extra black truffle, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like always we'll have fresh Sud Forno bread made by our Head Baker Luca Rotatori and we'll end the meal off with a chocolate cake from our Head Pastry Chef Armando Palmieri.
Choose the multi-course meal on its own or pair it with a selection of wines and bags from our wine agency Cavinona! You can also choose to add-on a truffle shaver to your meal box to make it even easier for you to shave your truffle (or even cheese or chocolate) onto your dishes.

2017 'Marena' Valtellina Superiore Sassella DOCG, Mamete Prevostini, Lombardia: A creamy red that is well-balanced with fresh acidity and lightly chewy tannins structuring flavors of dark berries, roses and wood spice. From the steep terraces of Valtellina, this is a decisive but elegant red.

Medium ruby red with garnet highlights. Spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and stewed fruit. Soft on the palate, good tannins, and acidity complimented by the sweet notes coming from ageing in wood.
2015 Barolo La Morra DOCG, Agricola Brandini, Piemonte: The nose is aromatic and fine with notes of strawberry, spice and roses. Good body and exceptionally smooth; young tannins with and elegant and clean finish.
Tartar di Manzo: Open “tartar di manzo” package and place each medallion on a plate. Season with maldon salt and EVOO. Garnish with heirloom carrots and radishes. Shave black truffle on each tartar and serve.
Tajarin al Tartufo: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a pan melt one of the butter pucks. Cook the tajarin in the boiling water for 3 minutes, strain from the water and add to the pan with the butter. Add the parmigiano and a bit of pasta water to the pan, cook for 1 more minute. Add the second puck of butter tossing the tajarin and plate. Shave some truffle on each plate and serve.
Sformato con Uovo in Camicia: Preheat oven to 450F and leave eggs at room temperature. Heat cheese tortino for 12 minutes. Crack each of the eggs into an empty aluminum foil cup. Place in the oven with the tortino for 4 minutes longer. Arrange the lettuces on two plates in mounds. Once the cheese tortino is out of the oven, score its sides and tilt over the lettuces. Gently tip the baked “sous vide egg” over the cheese tortino. Drizzle with EVOO and sprinkle with maldon salt. Shave black truffle and serve!
