The world of Italian cuisine is all about experimentation. Many of the most famous Italian recipes that you’ll see in restaurants today are a result of trial and error! This has led to a lot of food pairings that you wouldn’t have considered in the past. If you’ve looked on our menu before, you’ll likely have noticed a few recipes with some essence of truffles in them. There are plenty of delicious truffle based recipes in Italian cuisine. If you want to try making them for yourself, we give you some fun ideas below!
Flour Gnocchi With Truffle Sauce
Have you ever tried to eat gnocchi by itself? If you have, you’ll likely have noticed that there isn’t a lot of flavor to them. This means that you’ll have to experiment with different sauces and spices to mix up the flavor profile, and truffle sauce is an excellent way of getting this done! You can either make the gnocchi yourself or buy them, but the truffle sauce is what makes this dish excel.
