Truffle season is in full swing and to celebrate the fabulous ingredients some of London’s finest restaurants have pulled out all of the stops with decedent truffle menus.

Zucca

Zucca, one of my favourite neighborhood Italians, is offering an incredibly good value truffle menu. Head Chef Sam Harris believes truffles should be served the traditional Italian, therefore the menu features dishes such as scrambled eggs, Vitella crudo and fonduta (a rich melting cheese sauce) all of which will be served with freshly shaved white truffle and priced between £8 and £20. www.zuccalondon.com

Gauthier Soho

Michelin starred Gauthier Soho is serving its signature truffle risotto updated with the new season white winter truffles.  The rich risotto comes with jus de roti and parmesan reggiano, served with generous shavings of the wonderful winter truffle.

Massimo Restaurant & Oyster Bar

Chef patron Massimo Riccioli has created a dedicated five course truffle menu, which pays homage to the highly sought after white Alba truffle with shavings gracing Mediterranean dishes such as spaghetti with scallops and basil and grilled fillets of red mullet, anchovy sauce and artichokes whilst a truffle infused homemade ice-cream will round off the experience.  This is not your ordinary local I-Ty, the White Truffle Menu at Massimo is priced at £190 per head.
