L & #8217; fall into the pot: poached egg with porcini mushrooms and black truffle pumpkin puree. A dish that has all the colours, the scents and textures of this wonderful season. Despite what you might think, is a very very easy to prepare: the pumpkin puree is sweet and rich, topped with butter and Parmesan cheese, ingredient in a delicious Parmesan cream which gives the dish a tasty and soft note. Obviously you have to use the right pumpkin: I suggest a valance, violina a pumpkin, a pumpkin Hokkaido or Iron Cup. All pumpkins tasty, little watery and with a slightly sweet taste that resembles the taste of chestnuts.
The mushroom and truffle takes you straight into autumn underbrush, l & #8217; egg is one of my favorite raw and here is the protagonist, with its dark yolk: I really loved this hearty main dish, perfect with a glass of crisp white wine, fragrant and saline notes.
