Recipe Notes

Chef Notes:

  1. Not Vegetarian? - Feel free in to add whatever meat you want. However do note that it might overpower the truffle notes, so you want to use white meats like chicken or a little fish and not overtly perfuming meats like lamb.
  2. Oil or fresh truffles? - Its up your budget. You could get cheaper truffle infused oil and spray at the final product, but its not the genuine experience.
  3. Herbs - You could add a few herbs like a little thyme, but the more you add the more you draw away from truffles, so a little will do.
  4. Seasoning - Go a little heavy, remember is a rice dish, and rices tend to taste pretty well, tasteless. So definitely go heavy.
  5. Stock Type - Vego definitely but chicken will do fine
  6. Other Veggies - Go for it!  A little celery maybe a little carrot, anything a little bland will work.
