June A-Team – Truffles

Winter has arrived and so too has beautiful winter produce.

And coincidentally, with our upcoming Truffle & Charcuterie celebration, we decided to send our A-Team contributors an aromatic, in-season black truffle as part of this month’s mystery bag.  The truffles arrived at Damian Pike’s stall fresh from Manjimup, WA, and we just couldn’t resist.

We also sourced some gorgeous in-season walnuts from Paddlewheel; a divine Yarra Valley cheese from Maker & Monger; and some super fresh brussels sprouts, but the truffle was by far the star ingredient. Jo from Second Helping could smell it before she even opened the bag!

Thanh Do of @Ieatblog was our guest contributor for this month. He created a gloriously simple truffled fettucini carbonara packed full of flavour.

Jo managed truffles two ways, including a stunning truffled risotto and a tagliatelle with walnut and truffles – not to mention a couple of beautiful side dishes featuring brussels sprouts.
