Truffles at Splendido Restaurant

Truffles are back in Toronto restaurants. 'Tis the season! Splendido offers a truffle tasting menu and the dish below was the highlight for me.

I enjoyed one of the most sophisticated and highly creative "salads", a world class dish and right here in toronto!! A warm salad of matsutake mushrooms, jerusalem artichoke puree, jerusalem artichoke chips, nutmeg panchetta, crunchy croutons, lambs lettuce, tiny parmesan cubes, lemon and olive oil emulsion and shaved fresh black truffles. All of this was  laid out on a rectangular wood platter, a feast for the eyes and the palate, an incredible combination of crunchy and creamy, an explosion of complementary flavours and textures!
