Truffle Carpaccio, 1 jar

Shallot, 1x

Olive oil, 3 tbsps

Balinese Truffle Salt, to taste

Carnaroli rice, 1 heaping cup

  1. Heat the broth and water to a boil in the 2 qt pot, and set aside.
  2. Whip the heavy cream to soft peaks.
  3. Grate the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Chop half of the Truffle Carpaccio.

How to cook

  1. Sweat the shallot in olive oil over low heat, season lightly with Balinese Truffle Salt, cook until translucent and tender without any color.
  2. Add the rice and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the rice has a toasty aroma but no color.
  3. Deglaze the pan with white wine, increase heat to medium-high, cook until all of the wine has evaporated.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and add one ladle of hot stock to the pan.
  5. Cook until almost all of the liquid has evaporated, stirring constantly. Repeat this process until there is only ¼ cup of stock left and the rice is al dente.
  6. Turn down to low heat and add the butter, whipped cream, and Parmesan cheese. Stir until homogenous.
  7. Add the chopped Truffle Carpaccio to the risotto.
  8. Add a couple drops of Champagne or your other favorite vinegar to heighten the taste.
