Winter is considered the best season for savouring seasonal white truffles and from now till 12 December 2020, La Table French Brasserie at New World Millennium Hong Kong Hotel presents a special five-course dinner set menu featuring white truffles from Alba, Italy.
Italy is renowned for the finest white truffles, particularly those from around the town of Alba. As the most precious of all truffles whose season is short, Alba white truffles are impossible to cultivate and must be naturally sourced. These delicacies are highly desired among gourmets for their exquisite flavour and unique aroma.
At the newly renovated La Table French Brasserie, guests will be delighted with an exquisite white truffle set menu highlighting these “gastronomic white diamonds.” The gourmet experience begins with a refreshing appetiser — Hokkaido Scallop Carpaccio — which comes with apple, basil and white truffle. Diners can then savour a 65 ̊C Poached Organic Egg and White Truffle complemented with Bayonne ham and brioche, a savoury dish that best brings out the truffle fragrance. Next on the menu is Truffle Risotto, a tempting, creamy concoction made with one year-aged Italian “Acquerello” carnaroli rice and Comté cheese. For the main course, diners can enjoy tender Iberian Pork with White Truffle and Cèpes Purée. The dinner ends on a sweet note with White Truffle Raspberry Tartlet, featuring a smooth white truffle cream on a pistachio crumble.
The Alba White Truffle Menu will be available at dinner from Monday to Saturday (excluding public holidays) at HKD1,488 per person. The chef will shave six grams of raw white truffle in total for this menu. For reservations, please call +852 2313 4222 or book online via newworldmillenniumhotel.com.
