Meal Description 

We will be hand rolling the pasta the morning of delivery and will offer a choice of hand cut Pappardelle (wide and thick) or Linguini from a press (thin and uniform).  We are using imported Doppio Zero, or "00" Italian flour, which is finely ground and powdery, yielding a light and porous dough. The Italians categorize flour based on a scale of "2" for coarsely ground to “00” for fine.  00 is from the central part of the grain and is pure white, while 2 contains the husk, the outer layer of the grain, and is darker and coarser. Double Zero flour is unique and distinctive from finely ground pastry flour found in the U.S., as the gluten behaves differently by producing both a strong and elastic noodle.  It is this elasticity that provides for a superior chew and “mouth feel.”   The fresh pasta will only take one minute to cook in a pot of heavily salted water, which should taste like the sea.  The pasta will then go into the pan with mushrooms and truffle sauce with a splash of pasta water.   

Summer Black Truffles are in their peak season, so we thought we would take advantage.  Black on the outside and white on the inside, summer truffles are more mildly flavored than winter black truffles. Their gentle flavor is perfect for light summer dishes, having a slight muskiness with hints of coconut, walnuts and white wine.  The truffles will be infused in the cream overnight.  Chanterelles also are in season with their orange-gold color and nutty-fruity flavor.  The dish is highlighted with lavender and garnished with watercress, pecorino, and shavings of truffles.

CoodDC’s Chairman once attended a weekend-long wedding reception (like the one's they make movies out of) at a world famous destination restaurant and Inn, whose signature “snack” was popcorn topped with Summer Black Truffles.  By day 3, the Chairman began to experience “Truffle Fatigue,” which luckily proved a temporary affliction, as her love for the tuber has since returned.
