Shenzhen, China – October 25, 2016- Sensuous and mysterious, white truffles are considered as precious diamonds and command premier prices. Only a true gourmet chef can transform these jewels into fine delicacies. The relationship between rare ingredients and a talented chef is similar to that of an uncut diamond and its polisher. The vision of the polisher brings out the sparkling inner beauty of the diamond as Chef Stefano Nicodemo will when he launches his white truffle menu this November, at the award-winning restaurant, Paletto, at The Ritz-Carlton, Shenzhen.

The best white truffles—it is generally agreed—come from the Piedmont region of Italy, particularly around the town of Alba. They appear only from November to the end of December.

Using the rarest white truffles from Italy, Chef Stefano has created an à la carte menu devoted entirely to white truffle-themed appetizers, soups, main courses and desserts. At Paletto, our Chef Stefano understands the art of creating exquisite white truffle dishes. “It is the most wonderful time of the year for a truffle fan. With truffles, ninety percent of the time it is the aroma that helps to create the taste experience. They are very versatile. They combine and work with many different ingredients. The key is to match truffles with other flavors that are not overpowering,” Chef Stefano says. “I am pairing the truffles with fresh porcini in the new dishes. The subtle flavor of porcini works perfectly with the white truffles.”

The white truffle menu will be available from now till the end of December. To experience these creations, please contact Paletto restaurant at +86 755-2222-2222.
