Shaved White Truffles with Bacon and Chestnut Pappardelle
- 1 1/2 ounces white alba truffle (45 g)
- 12 raw porcini mushroom shavings
- 14 ounces country bacon, sous-vide (400 g)
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil (1 cl)
- 1 pound chestnut flour dough (500 g)
- 1 quart chicken consommé (1 l)
- 1/2 pint pheasant broth (20 cl)
- 3 ounces foie gras fat (80 g)
- 1 1/2 ounces butter (40 g)
- fleur de sel
Step 1: Pasta
Flatten the dough out by putting it through the pasta machine several times, lowering the setting one notch with each roll to 0.5. Rolling the dough out slowly will help it retain its texture.
Cut the pasta with a ribbed roulette into 1 inch (2.5 cm) wide ribbons. Allow 3 ounces (80 g) per serving.
Reduce 3 1/2 fluid ounces (10 cl) of pheasant broth with the butter and the foie gras fat.
Slice the country bacon into four pieces, 6 x 3/4 inches (15 x 2 cm) apiece, then roast in a pot with the grapeseed oil and the unpeeled garlic clove. Skim completely, and let the bacon simmer over a low heat with the remaining pheasant broth to glaze it.
Step 2: Finishing and Plating
Poach the pasta in the chicken consommé, drain it, and toss in the thickened pheasant broth.
