K brought some truffles back from her trip to the Piedmont region of Italy, and they became the star of a cozy, winter Sunday meal.

A creamy risotto dotted with petit pois and strips of wilted collard greens, with a little truffle cream added for good measure, and finished off with shavings of white truffle and grated Parmesan.

Sliced sourdough from Dean & Deluca drizzled with olive oil and slivers of white truffle.  A side of mouthwatering duck salami from the Hudson Valley Duck Farm at the Sunday Park Slope farmers market.  This platter was polished off by the end of the night.

The feast of queens.

A well deserved, happy meal!

Baby brussels sprouts sauteed with panko

Slices of acorn squash roasted in the oven with olive oil and zaatar, and drizzled with wildflower honey and red chilli pepper flakes.

Nearly hidden among the winter vegetable delight, were wilted collard greens seasoned with an apple cider vinegar from Canada with a slightly sweeter taste due to the quince-like fruit.

After watching Sunday’s lineup of cooking shows on PBS, and admiring Jacques Pepin’s technique and coveting his many souffles within a crepe, we finished off Trufflextravaganza with a pear and blackberry oat and Speculoos crisp topped with a scoop of blood orange sorbet.

So satisfying!
