Creamy Truffle Polenta Recipe
An easy way to incorporate that wonderful truffle flavor to an otherwise bland dish, our recipe for truffle polenta is quick, and simple yet super delicious. We use Tealdi's instant Polenta with truffles and make it extra flavorful and creamy by adding truffle butter and a cream cheese.
Grilled Iberico Pork Secreto Recipe
One of the finest portions of Iberico pork available, it’s almost a crime to think this portion might be a secret to many. As the name implies, Secreto means secret. A hidden cut sourced from the shoulder; this relatively small portion typically weighs around 10-15 ounces. Unbelievably juicy and well-marbled, it’s best served lightly seasoned and quickly grilled.
Pumpkin Gnocchi Recipe
There's nothing more delicious than home-made pasta, especially our super healthy recipe for pumpkin gnocchi. Baking the pumpkin instead of boiling it ensures you don't have any excess water and the gnocchi is plump and firm.
Note: substitute for Parmigiano Reggiano if you can't find Grana Padano.

A decadent cake made with ready-made crepes is also oh-so-easy and perfect for the hectic holiday season.

Risotto is already a wonderful dish, but when you pair it with luxurious truffle oil and delicious mushrooms, it takes the dish to a whole new level. Parmigiano "crackers" look elegant and are so incredibly easy to make, you'll be tempted to serve them along with any dish.
Chocolate Dipped Walnut Biscotti Recipe
A great, foolproof biscotti recipe is something that every baker (even the weekend-warrior type) should have in his or her arsenal. Our walnut biscotti recipe is simple and easy, and turns out some deliciously crunchy biscotti with just enough sweetness and to amp up the wow factor, we dipped them in tempered chocolate for a “corner bakery look” and incredible flavor.
Storage: plain biscotti can be stored in an airtight container for several weeks (note that they will turn harder as days pass). If you choose to dip them in chocolate like we did, they will last a 3-4 days.
Easter Hot Cross Buns Recipe
A traditional dish for Easter, Hot Cross Buns are delicious and decorative, serving to bring the Easter celebration spirit to the table. Make sure to make these with enough time to let them rise, as hot cross buns are a bit time-intensive. The results though are totally worth it!
Seafood Risotto Recipe
For the lover of seafood, it doesn't get any better than a traditional risotto di mare - seafood risotto. We designed this as an appetizer, to be served on small bowls at parties where you don't want to fill up with just one thing. However, you can serve these in regular plates and bigger portions (the servings will change from 6 to 2).
Truffled Stracciatella Mini Cornbread Appetizers Recipe
A country classic, gone sophisticated! You'll love these little cornbread bites topped with fresh truffled stracciatella cheese, and a shaving of fresh truffle. The stretchy, creamy straciatella is the perfect topping for these sweet mini appetizers.
Fall Harvest Pizza Recipe
Craving some easy and comforting this fall? This is the pizza for your autumn menu! Topped with sweet squash, carrots and red bell peppers that have been tossed in warm fall spices, it's not only delicious, it's also super nutritious as well. We picked shredded mozzarella for a mild flavor, but you can pick blue cheese or goat cheese instead. Also, make the most of what's seasonally available and add apples or pears if that's more your taste. You can also easily take this vegetarian by removing the bacon, and vegan by removing the cheese.
