Black is Back



To coincide with its recent Michelin star rating under two-star Michelin chef Pino Lavarra, Tosca at the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong will offer another creative menu featuring "the black diamond of gastronomy"— the black truffle of Norcia. The five-course "Norcia Black Truffle Delights" menu will be available at Tosca through February, while some selected dishes will stay on the a la carte menu for guests to enjoy throughout the year.
 
With a profound culinary history, Norcia is an ancient town nestled in the southeastern region of Umbria. It is surrounded by spectacular hilly and mountainous areas known for being well-drained and lime-rich zones. The town is internationally famous for one of the gastronomic delicacies of Italy — Tartufo nero pregiato Umbro di Norcia (Umbrian rare black truffle of Norcia). Grown between November and March, this gastronomic gem has a pleasing and aromatic scent and exquisite flavors.  The black truffle tastes best when used in fine dishes, which Chef Pino is set to prepare.
 
The special "Norcia Black Truffle Delights" menu features five inspiring dishes, from crab cookies with roasted langoustine, veal trotter and black truffle; through to a rich cauliflower risotto with roasted scallop coral, black truffle and chives.
 
The "Norcia Black Truffle Delights" is priced at HK$2,180 per guest or HK$2,880 with wine pairing. The menu is available from 6pm to 10:30pm (Monday to Sunday) from February 1 to 28, 2014 (excluding Valentine's Day on February 14, 2014). www.ritzcarlton.com
