The black truffle has a starring role in the food at Lafite, the French restaurant at the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, from 23 February to 21 March 2015. It has been declared the Black Truffle Month, and Lafite will showcase this gourmet treasure from Perigord, France, known as the black diamond of the kitchen. This highly prized edible mushroom exudes a unique and enticing aroma that has wowed diners all over the world.

Lafite’s chef de cuisine Jean-Philippe Guiard has created a special French menu with black truffle, from appetisers to soup, main course and dessert.

These black truffle dishes appear in a three-course, four-course or six-course set menu, at RM350++, RM400++ and RM500++ respectively.

You can begin the six-course menu with Black Truffle Duck Liver Terrine, Lentil and Truffle Coulis, Warm Brioche.

It continues with Crispy Tiger Prawn with Parsnip Truffle Puree, followed by Truffle Root Vegetables Creamy Soup, Roasted Lobster and Truffle Butter Allumette.
Wagyu Beef Tenderloin with Black Truffle Crust, Truffle Creamy Potato and Rossini Sauce is the main course.

Then there’s the superb treat of Brie de Meaux with Black Truffle, Roasted Fresh Pear, Ruccola and Truffle Salad.

Black truffle is highly appreciated in desserts, and this appears in the Truffle Chocolate Profiteroles, the exquisite finale to a sublime truffle feast.

The French black truffle is a species native to southern Europe and France accounts for 45 per cent of the world production of black truffles.
