UN­EARTHED, THIS TRUF­FLE SEA­SON

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Peak Expert -

While priv­i­leged gour­mands fly to Eu­rope to en­joy the sea­son’s har­vest of white truf­fles – one of the most ex­pen­sive in­gre­di­ents in the world – you don’t have to get away to get a taste of the prime spec­i­mens. Here are some of the best places to get your an­nual fix.

ALBA 1836

It is only nat­u­ral for a restau­rant to cel­e­brate the most fa­mous pro­duce of its name­sake in a big way. And at Alba1836, truf­fle afi­ciona­dos can look for­ward to a spe­cial menu ded­i­cated to this prized tu­ber. From light starters of tar­tara all’Albese (Pied­mont-style beef tartare) and creamy but­tered risotto with parme­san, to mains of Black An­gus beef ten­der­loin served with a truf­fled potato puree and dessert of gelato al tartufo, each dish is de­signed to be a sim­ple stage for the white truf­fle – freshly shaved at your ta­ble­side – to shine. 28Dux­tonHill

BRACI

Miche­lin-star Braci kick­starts its quar­terly “Best of the Best” se­ries – a one-night ex­trav­a­ganza that high­lights fine premium pro­duce – with a five-course wine din­ner spot­light­ing the Alba White Truf­fle of Pied­mont. Timed to fea­ture th­ese culi­nary jewels in the prime of their sea­son, the Nov 13 event presents dishes such as blue lob­ster with au­tumn veg­eta­bles, foie gras with marsala and black cab­bage, and smoked egg yolk with fen­nel, ar­ti­chokes and 100-yearold bal­samic – all served with gen­er­ous shav­ings of white truf­fle, of course. Priced at $888 per per­son, the meal will be hosted by truf­fle ex­pert Gior­gio Richiardi, who will be shar­ing in­sider knowl­edge about this prized pro­duce. 52BoatQuay
