Eggs, porcini mushrooms, Truffle, cheese fondue… What more can you want for dinner on a winter evening? To me, this dish is the perfect synthesis of some of my favorite foods: It is creamy, tastes like undergrowth, Sometimes the softness is interrupted by the crunchiness of nuts and pane carasau, sprayed with oil and browned in the oven. I'm used’ a dish that reminds me of a region that I like very much, the Piedmont. What do you think of in view of Christmas? If your new year started with an appetizer so… I serve it as an appetizer with the aromatic Gewürztraminer and I guarantee that, when the fork breaks the poached egg and the yolk begins to leak, the evening off to a great start.
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 4 eggs
- 4 mushrooms not large
- 30 grams of toasted hazelnuts
- 2 Sage leaves
- extra virgin olive oil as required
- salt and pepper
- 4 pods of carasau bread
- one tablespoon of white vinegar of wine or apples
- 100 ml of cream
- 120 grams of taleggio Dop
- a truffle scorzone (or white, If you want to exaggerate)
Clean the mushrooms, cut into medium size pieces and sauté for a minute in a pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and Sage. Season with salt and pepper and set aside: the mushrooms must be just blanched in order not to lose consistency.
Sprinkle the breads with a little oil and a pinch of salt, then pass it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 2 minutes: attention because it burns in a Flash, I had to redo it twice.
Prepare the fondue: put the cream in a saucepan, bring it to a boil, turn off the heat and add the taleggio cut into pieces, stirring until it has completely thawed.
Pour each egg in a bowl. Boil water with a tablespoon of vinegar, then with the help of a spoon to create a vortex in the Pan and pour in the Center an egg. The centripetal force of the vortex will cause the egg white wrap around the yolk. After 2 minutes gently remove the egg from the water and keep warm and continue with the other 3 eggs.
Composition of the dish. I recommend you use of holsters: arrange the mushrooms very hot, then put on the egg and garnish with generous slices of black truffle. Add some toasted hazelnuts, the wafer of bread seascape100 and complete with a fondue. I would recommend that you pour into the dish to Diners from a jug, nice hot and creamy. Bon appétit!
