Tonnarelli with fonduta 

The classic pasta from Alba is tajarin –rich, wafer-thin noodles made only with egg yolks & flour. Tonnarelli are still rather fine, but a little fatter; easier to cook and with a pleasing bite. Here, we toss them with a fonduta of butter, parmesan, and yet more egg yolks. Sometimes too much is just right. *We will send you a white Alba truffle for 4, to be enjoyed by 2, for which this dish is a perfect vehicle

Trout with spiced breadcrumbs

In Val Maira, a long and remote valley in Cuneo, I ate the best trout of my life. It was fresh from the river that ran past the restaurant, and was stuffed with breadcrumbs lightly spiced with cinnamon, cloves, lemon & thyme and enriched with a little parmesan. It was spectacular.

Fig leaf 'pannacotta'

This is not really a true pannacotta –it in fact contains no cream - ‘panna’ – whatsoever. Instead, I use yoghurt for a lighter result and a gentle acidity, and flavour it with milk perfumed with the ethereal scent of fig leaves.

For your meal you will need:

A large pot for cooking the tonnarelli

A bowl for dressing the tonnarelli

An oven tray for the trout

Not strictly necessary but a pair of tongs is near invaluable for cooking pasta

The detailed recipes for the dishes are here, but in essence:

  • Cook the tonnarelli in boiling water, and toss well with the sauce
  • Shave copious truffle over and descend into fits of ecstasy
  • Bake the trout for 8-10 minutes, then eat
  • Unmould the pannacotta and eat
