It’s Truffle Season

It’s that time of the year again and ELMO’S restaurant in Ponsonby has announced their brand-new fresh truffle menu, including:

Purses of fresh pasta filled with crayfish and Spanner Crab, mushroom duxelles, swimming in a beef and sherry broth and littered with fresh black Perigord Truffle.

The epitome of decadent comfort food, homemade brioche bun is filled with fresh truffle béchamel, prosciutto.

Truffle Burrata Served perfect with a drizzle of olive oil, topped with freshly shaved truffle.

Discovery of Truffle Pizza, fresh black truffle is grated over fior di latte, taleggio, gruyère and gorgonzola.

The menu is for a limited time and is a great example of a restaurant using a seasonal ingredient to create buzz around a menu, drawing in customers for a special culinary experience.
