Celebrate the winter truffle season in true Italian style at Gusto at the Grand!
Truffles and Italy go together like pasta and good times and have been part of Italian cuisine for a long, long time. Two thousand year old recipes have been found that show truffles being a popular item on the ancient Roman banquet menu, although they must have been rare and expensive even then as only the upper class could enjoy them.
These days truffles are grown mostly in the central and north western regions of Italy and are used either as a core ingredient or sometimes just freshly shaved over dishes to add an extra dimension to the flavour. But you don’t have to travel all the way over to Italy to enjoy simple food, classic flavours and the unique taste and aroma of fresh truffle. Thanks to New Zealand Truffles and SkyCity, you can enjoy truffles in true rustic Italian style right here in Auckland at Gusto at the Grand.
