Seven Culinary Wonders: Truffles

Nearly all of us have heard of truffles. Some have sampled them in various forms and recipes. But even fewer have tried cooking with this highly acclaimed, delightfully aromatic ingredient.

The final event in the Handwritten Wines Seven Culinary Wonders series will feature the incomparable and delicious truffle. This virtual presentation offers the perfect opportunity to learn about, cook with, and discover the flavorful contribution of the famous Black Truffle in your culinary experience.

Decidedly different in most aspects from its more prominent cousin, the mushroom, the truffle grows only underground and possesses a unique aroma and flavor that food enthusiasts worldwide crave.

The 7th Culinary Wonder of the World Presentation: The Truffle

As the culmination of Handwritten Wines Seven Culinary Wonders series, Resident Chef, Chef MikeC, will present a virtual live cooking demonstration featuring truffles on December 10 at 5:30 PM PST.

This boutique winery’s virtual program will demonstrate truffle handling and presentation of some delicious recipes that incorporate the aromatic shavings of fresh Black Truffle.

Recipes Using Fresh Truffles

A sampling of some of Chef MikeC’s truffle-infused recipes include:

  • Black Truffle Pasta
  • Black Truffle Grilled Cheese
  • Seared Sea Scallops with Black Truffle & Ghee

Note that the sensory impact of truffles is so noteworthy that each recipe only calls for a single ounce of the ingredient to create the target profile.

Participation in the Truffle Presentation

Registered participants will receive a fresh Black Truffle plus a truffle shaver and recipes to enjoy the flavorful essence.

And, since no gourmet meal is complete without the perfect wine pairing, each participant will receive bottles of both the 2010 and 2011 Handwritten Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Participation in this unique virtual event will cost $345 for the entire package. You may phone Handwritten Wines at (707)-944-8524 to make your reservations for this most captivating and informative event.
