White Truffle Season at Il Borro Tuscan Bistro

Il Borro Tuscan Bistro, situated on Berkeley Street in the heart of Mayfair, is celebrating white truffle season with the Il Tartufo Bianco Menu this winter. Hailing from the Il Borro and Ferragamo Estates in Tuscany, Il Borro Tuscan Bistro prides itself on serving refined, Tuscan produce and will invite diners to indulge in a limited edition menu – with each dish showcasing the luxurious and highly sought-after treasure that is the white truffle.

White truffles come into season from the very end of September to December and are unearthed from Tuscany’s bountiful countryside. Il Borro Tuscan Bistro selects the finest from their trusted supplier, who is an authority on trading this rare and specialist ingredient.

Truffle aficionados will enjoy starters including carpaccio di manzo e tartufo bianco: thin slices of beef tenderloin dressed with Il Borro’s extra virgin olive oil from its Tuscan estate, and finished with freshly grated slices of white truffle. Vegetarians will enjoy asparagi gratinati, uovo al tegamino, e tartufo bianco: gratinee of asparagus served with an oozing egg yolk and grated white truffle.

With the primi course comes plates of comforting homemade pasta and risotto, with decadent dishes featuring tagliolini al tartufo bianco – ribbons of tagliolini served in an opulent butter sauce enriched with white truffle; or risotto al burro, Parmigiano Reggiano e tartufo bianco: slow cooked Acquerello risotto with aged Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh white truffle.

Diners looking to elevate their meal, can tuck into the grand pizza al tartufo bianco, a thin base baked in the restaurant’s in-house pizza oven topped with creamy buffalo mozzarella PDO, and white truffle. Those looking to make the most of the season can add additional shavings of white truffle to each dish, priced at £22 per gram.

The Il Tartufo Bianco menu is available until the end of December. Il Borro Tuscan Bistro, 15 Berkley Street, London, W1J 8DY (ilborrotuscanbistro.co.uk; @tuscanbistrolondon)
