On the hunt: truffle pannacotta

We are smack bang in the middle of the black truffle season over here in Capital Country, where the Canberra Truffle Festival is currently taking place. Naturally, things have been busy over here, with truffle hunting and truffle eating while the short season permits — just look at the haul that was brought in that day!

truffle hunt - the haul terra preta truffle farm

This week, I’m absolutely thrilled to point you over to one of my favourite blogs, Local is Lovely, by the lovely Sophie Hansen, where I’ve written a guest post about my recent visit to a local truffle farm (the beautiful Terra Preta in Braidwood) for a hunt (the same beautiful place I visited this time last year), as well as a couple of truffle recipes, including this truffle pannacotta with poached pears, which I’m a bit excited about.

Do take a look.

    Oh, gorgeous! This refined panna cotta must taste out-of-this-world.

    Truffle, pears and panna cotta sounds like a taste of heaven, how decadent!

  3. Something tells me this is absolutely delicious… and not quite as floury as the one we tasted recently!
    : )

      Haha, you’re right… if I do say so myself! Velvety and silky but not too rich as it’s made with part milk, part cream (rather than 100% cream). And you can taste the truffle! 😉
