“The white truffle from Alba, Piedmont is the daddy of all truffles. They totally move you; I have an instinctual attraction to them. From the first time I smelt a white truffle, I was like “oh, what do we have here?” I was working in one of Marco Pierre White’s restaurants and I can remember the truffle man coming in, opening the box and that was it, I was completely drawn in," Chef Curtis Stone.
Revered for their exquisite flavor and rare perfection and in time for the holiday season, we welcome the Italian Alba white truffle back to Maude for a final tasting menu before we flip Maude on its head with a new concept in 2018. And taking a cue from our October's Greatest Hits menu, expect to see a few of our favorite truffle dishes from previous years as well as entirely new and original dishes carefully curated by Executive Chef Justin Hilbert.
Holding a white truffle up to your nose and inhaling its intoxicating scent and watching delicate shavings float onto a simple plate of food has an almost hypnotic effect. The entire truffle experience (including hunting them in the field for those fortunate enough to ever do this!) commands savouring.
The Italian white truffle season is anticipated by food lovers the world over, with chefs falling over themselves and each other to get their hands on the best ‘diamonds’ from the ground. Whether you’ve fallen for truffles and count down the days to their fleeting season or would like to experience the ‘diamond of the kitchen’ for the very first time, we have a treat for you in November.
Reservations for November's White Truffle Menu open 1st October 2017.
