Italian white truffle season has arrived and the talented chefs at Michelin-starred Elements restaurant at The Okura Prestige Bangkok are serving up wonderful dishes featuring the ‘diamond of the kitchen’ using French culinary techniques with Japanese twists.
Widely considered to be among the best truffles in the world, fresh Italian white winter truffles are also known as Alba truffles. The highly-prized fungi are harvested in the fecund earth of mountainous woods, particularly in Italy’s northern Piedmont region. Truffles give off an intoxicating nutty or woody aroma and add great depth of flavour to any dish, hence white truffle lovers can expect a fungi feast with highlights on the Elements menu including innovative dishes such as chestnut ravioli with white truffle, braised chard and Tofu cream, and pan-fried lobster medallions with white truffle, sea urchin sabayon, and ikura. Servers will also be on hand to present truffles and offer shavings of the precious fungi to diners at tableside.
The Italian White Truffle menus are at the market price. Available at Elements restaurant every Tuesday – Saturday from 16 October – 1 December 2018, 6 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.
Elements Restaurant is located on the 25th floor of The Okura Prestige Bangkok. For more information and reservations, please contact 02 687 9000, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or book on our website www.okurabangkok.com
