If you've overdone it at Christmas but you want to have a stunning, easy to prepare luxury meal for New Year's, think truffles, think Rossini...
In Northern Italy Rossini was almost as famed for his cooking, as he was for his operas. Many recipes are attributed to Rossini and he was known for his love of truffles. Over time these recipes have been altered to suit regional Italian tastes and local ingredients. The famous 'Filetti alla Rossini' is a legendary steak and truffle combination that takes no time to prepare, leaving you free to enjoy New Year's Eve.
The Apennine Mountains of Central Italy is the heartland for the Black Truffle, and here this famous Rossini recipe is made thus:
- Highest quality steaks (one per person, ideally filet mignon)
- foie gras,
- unsalted butter
- white wine,
- black truffle
