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 wanted my spouse's birthday trip to France to be special and we could not have expected such a perfect time. From initial communication with Emilie by email right up to having a driver meet us in Paris CDG airport, it was a stress-free vacation. Emilie provided first class service throughout and tailored our desire to see Paris, the Loire Valley …

We are a group of Wine Aficionados and we recently traveled to Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, and Paris and were very impressed with this service. It took us quite some time to formalize (and agree) what we wanted in terms of places and wineries we wanted to visit, but in the end "France Just for You" came through with excellent organization and …

Emilie, You have created for us the most outstanding well planned vacation possible. We have thoroughly enjoyed following your suggestions each day-- each choice well selected specifically for us. And even when things didn't go perfectly-- like a flat tire on the rental car or a pilot's strike which resulted in the cancellation of our light, you …

We are preparing to do our second trip with Emilie to the Loire Valley, October 2018. Our first trip was to the region of Provence which was perfectly guided and gave us a most memorable experience. I highly recommend Emilie’s ability to put together a fabulous and memorable France just for you holiday.

You gave me so many good suggestions that honestly, I just walked everywhere you recommended, with something breathtaking around every corner. The guidebook was great and the suggestion to make an effort to try French was a solid one. I did much better once I got comfortable trying. I will recommend your service to anyone I know thinking at coming …
