Shave that bitch!

- Musician Puff Daddy’s order to chef serving truffles

At costs approaching US$14,200 per kilogram, precious white truffles merit in price alone their reputation as the “diamond of the kitchen.

While truffles are rare, rarer still are the fragrantly exquisite “white truffles” or “trifola d’Alba” found attached to the root systems of oak, hazel, poplar and beech trees in the Langhe and Montferrant areas of the piedmont region of northern Italy.

Harvested in October and November of each year, white truffles are pale cream or brown in color with white marbling, Sought after by gourmands and gourmets alike, the roots are harvested using specially trained dogs or pigs who root out a wild crop that is increasingly elusive and expensive with each passing season.

Musty with a smell likened by some to moldy locker room, the taste of the truffle is both delicate and complex. Sliced wafer thin, they are often served raw - garnishing soups, pasta, pureed potatoes, eggs or salads. Thin slivers of truffles are also cooked in meat dishes, served with foie gras or used in stuffing for poultry.

One Night Only - November 30, 2013

Suffering from a serious over-demand world-wide, the precious truffles that will grace the table of executive chef James Ephraim at the Mozaic Beach Club on Saturday, November 30, 2013 will be hand carried to Bali directly from the Fiera del Tartufo (truffle fair) in Alba, Italy held during the harvest period each Fall.

The special six-course degustation menu using white truffles will be paired with premium Basasiolo Wines that are nurtured by the same calcareous terroir that foster the rare fungi of the Piedmont Region.

TASTING NOTES: One of the Piedmont’s leading white wines, Gavi covers an area stretching from the village Novi Ligure to the foothills of the Ligurian Appennines. To wear the DOCG designation Gavi di Gavi Granee only comes from the village of Gavi.

Dry but refreshing, keen and well balanced.
