Truffle has such as special taste that you should not go for a complicated recipe to enjoy its flavours...The best is to grate it on pasta or in eggs. You may keep fresh truffles in a box in the fridge together with whole eggs...it will give the taste to the eggs.

What we do when we have a fresh truffle (not really often): we grate it in butter and place this truffle butter in ice-cube compartments in the freezer. Then, when we want to flavor a dish with truffles, we just get a butter-cube or 2. 

INGREDIENTS

  • a small can of truffles in the oil or even better a little piece of fresh truffle to grate on top of the pasta
  • 2 cups of fresh mushrooms (shiitake, button, paris)
  • 300g of thick cream
  • 300g of fresh linguini or tagliatelle which you will cook al dente
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  • salt, pepper, olive oil

PREPARATION OF THE TRUFFLE PASTA

  • Cook the pasta al dente
  • Heat olive oil and 2 spoons of butter in a pan
  • add the onion and garlic until it gets brown but not burnt
  • stir all the mushrooms and keep a little bit of the mushroom water in there so it won't get dry
  • add the cream and pasta and mix it all + salt and pepper.
  • when ready to serve, grate the truffle on top of the plate.

We were overwhelmed by the wealth of information available when attempting to plan our 6 week self drive holiday in France. Never having been to France before we found the task daunting and sifting through forums full of information only confused us.

We are independent travelers, and usually I do extensive research on Tripadvisor and other websites, and plan our own itinerary. I started doing this for our France section of our trip, and came across Emilie's France Just for You website. End of research ! After an initial inquiry, Emilie totally customised our Normandy and the Loire Valley trip …

We could not be happier. When we first received the guide book and brochures, we thought we would not need them, but they were invaluable! Our first stay with Florence and Phil was especially memorable but really we cannot think of a highlight because it was all wonderful. We will certainly recommend your company to anyone we know travelling to …
