Fontina Cheese Fondue With Truffle

Fontina Cheese Fondue With Truffle

Description

Fontina cheese fondue with truffle is a quick and luxurious starter for two. Simply heat through and serve with cubes of fresh bread, sautéed potatoes and even quail’s eggs or steamed asparagus spears.

The fondue is made with Italian Fontina and Fontal cheese and cream for a velvety texture. Slices of black summer truffle add the distinctive earthy depth of this highly prized ingredient.

Fontina cheese fondue with truffle is not just for dipping – add a spoonful to a mushroom risotto to add richness and to help thicken it. Use the fondue to fill mini pastry shells, and top with wafer-thin slices of rare roast beef to make indulgent canapes.

Tartuflanghe was founded in 1980 by Domenica Bertolusso and Beppe Montanaro. They started their careers with a restaurant called ‘Da Beppe’ in Alba, Italy. The restaurant was considered something of a pilgrimage for mushroom and truffle lovers, and their passion for Italian truffles inspired them to create Tartuflanghe. In the beginning, Domenica and Beppe wanted to give people the opportunity to taste truffle even out of season. Over the years, Beppe’s creativity inspired a whole range of truffle products in celebration of the famous tuber.

The company name was Domenica’s idea – ‘tartuf’ from the Italian word for truffle (tartufo), and ‘langhe’ from the Langhe region of Italy where the truffles are found.
