An Easy-to-Make Black Truffle Sandwich from a Michelin-Starred Chef…
Consider It Your Overindulgent Super Bowl Party Appetizer
By Sam Eichner · January 31, 2018
The adventurous sandwich connoisseur you are, we thought you might enjoy a simple recipe for this deliciously indulgent toasty: the Black Truffle Sandwich.
It hails from Chef Ken Frank, of the Michelin-starred French restaurant, La Toque at The Westin Verasa Napa. A known truffle lover, he was the first American to be invited to participate in the annual Fiera Internazionale Tartufo Bianco D’Alba—a fancy Italian truffle festival—and has been the chef host for the Napa Truffle Festival annually at his restaurant for the past eight years. Needless to say, he knows his stuff.
This new sandwich, enticingly pictured above, is currently available on his all black truffle menu, and incorporates fresh Black Winter Truffles from the Truffle and Wine Company in Western Australia. But since you’re probably not in Napa right now, we’ve taken the liberty of providing the recipe for you here to replicate at home—or for the Super Bowl.
Sure as hell beats not-doing-that.
