At Artisan de la Truffe, seasonal truffles feature in every single dish, whether they’re freshly shaved onto an appetiser or infused into an ice cream for dessert. The best item from the menu, though, is also the simplest – the tagliatelle with truffle shavings ($178). The pasta is as much of a star as the famed fungi and is made in-house before it’s cooked to spot-on al dente-ness. Likewise, the sauce – made from white wine, cream, chicken broth and parmesan – is so delicious, we’d drink it by the spoonful. The adorning truffle shavings change depending on the seasons – black winter truffles should be available from now until early next year alongside the black Périgord species, which is served until early spring. If you really want to spoil yourself, order your tagliatelle with white Alba truffles (additional $180 for three grams) before they go out of season in December.
