The New Year re-celebration with our first Black Truffle Dinner of the Year “The Diamond of the Kitchen” & a selection of Bordeaux Wines
Lutèce Bistro & Wine Bar celebrates the new Black Truffle season matched with an array of Bordeaux wines on Thursday 19th January 2017
Following the great success of our last Winter truffle dinners South & North Hemispheres, attendees will be treated to a delectable six-course feast that combines exquisite French flavours with the unique truffle taste.
The finest truffles comes from France, particularly the south western region known as the Dordogne.
Historically as well as currently, the most famous black truffle of all is from a specific part of the Dordogne called the Périgord. In fact, fresh French winter black truffles are often called the “Diamonds of Périgord.” They are in season from December to March, French truffle markets feature delectable Périgord black truffles characterized by a subtle aroma& an earthy flavour reminiscent of a rich chocolate. They reach their pinnacle of fragrance & flavour in January & February.
Like other varieties of truffles, the Périgord black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) grows beneath the surface of the soil among the root systems of specific types of trees and develops a symbiotic relationship with those trees, which primarily consist of oak, but also beech, hazelnut, chestnut, birch and poplar
Romain Bapst & Chef de Cuisine Qian Cao are excited to celebrate this fine ingredient in true French style, that uniquely intertwine the black truffle to bring out distinct and full flavours. Dishes such as The Paul Bocuse truffle soup, The Western Australian Lobster salad & the black truffle, 72 hours Braised Australian Wagyu oxtail with the black truffle & onion “soubise”, carrot & orange puree, & the Poached apple, truffle & crème caramel
