The best white truffle menus in HK this season

Nicholini’s at Conrad

Nicholini’s at Conrad Hong Kong has launched a collection of culinary delicacies to celebrate the return of Piedmontese white truffle.

Capitalising on the culinary potential of white truffle, the dishes come in a variety of textures and flavour profiles. For example, “pan-fried foie gras, Jerusalem artichokes, sweet shallots and white truffle” fuses the fattiness of the goose liver with the earthiness of the Italian fungus to unleash a duet of aromas.

“Italian veal tenderloin, Brussels sprouts, finferli and morel mushrooms, colonnata pork and white truffle” conjures up the taste of autumn – especially the umami-rich finferli and morel.

Chef Riccardo Catarsi re-interprets a Sicilian classic in “Sicilian tiger prawn carpaccio, smoked eggplant, cauliflower, Kaluga caviar, white truffle”. Coming from the fishing village of Mazara del Vallo, the sweet red prawn is one of the most prized seafood species in the whole of Sicily. To finish off, “traditional white chocolate, hazelnut and white truffle chocolate parfait” is a sweet marriage of the regional specialties of Piedmont.

The white truffle seasonal menu is served at Nicholini’s now until the end of the truffle season. Diners can order the dishes from the a-la-carte menu with a selection of Italian premium wines.
