British Truffle Season Celebrated in Style at Corrigan’s Mayfair
The truffle season is upon us and Corrigan’s Mayfair is the place to celebrate it, with an evening dedicated to one of the world’s most luxurious and rare culinary ingredients.
Chef-patron Ross Bryans has created a six-course truffle tasting menu, using both black and white truffles.
Taking place on November 20, the evening will showcase the very best of the season’s truffles paired with wines selected by head sommelier, Jolanta Dinnadge.
Supplying the sought-after ingredient is world-renowned Wiltshire Truffles, a specialist family-run business dedicated to hunting English truffles from a secret location in the deepest countryside, as well as the best from around the world.
With a true understanding and passion for the gourmet ingredient, Ross Bryans has come up with a menu guided by the season, choosing ingredients that perfectly complement the truffles.
Alternating black and white varieties of the most precious truffles on earth, guests will be taken on a journey from the moment they arrive, starting with the chef’s truffle canapés and Champagne.
As the banquet begins, Ross will introduce each dish beginning with the terrine of duck liver, truffle braised celery, black truffle and Granny Smith apple followed by dishes such as white truffle risotto with caramelised pears; pan fried fillet of sea bass, celeriac and black truffle; black truffle brie de meaux, fig chutney, mache salad, and white chocolate and hazelnut millefeuille, milk ice cream and white truffle.
Truffle hunter Zac Frost will be guiding guests through the evening, briefcase in hand filled with the rarest and most expensive treasures, and offering insight into industry secrets in finding and selecting the best truffles.
A seat at the table will cost £185 per person and £285 for those who would like each dish paired with wine, selected to highlight key flavours in each dish. Truffles will feature on the a la carte menu at Corrigan’s Mayfair throughout the season.
