Tajarin al Tartufo
-1250 g milled semolina
-250 g flour
-1000 g egg yolk ( around 55 egg yolks)
-150 g black truffle
Weigh all ingredients separately. Carefully wash the truffle. Dry and finely chop with a knife.
Stir together the semolina and flour and arrange in a heap on a pastry board. Add egg yolks and minced truffle to the flour mix and knead by hand. Alternatively, you can use a mechanical pasta mixer.
Once the dough is uniform, cover with plastic wrap and let it rest for 2 hours at room temperature. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to a thickness of 2/3 mm and cut the dough into strips, roughly 30 cm in length. Sprinkle the pasta with semolina and roll them lengthwise. Proceed by cutting the rolls into very fine strips and separate them with the help of your hands, uncoiling them delicately. Spread them out on a wooden board and let them dry overnight at room temperature. Turn them over to dry on the opposite side for another day. Once completely dried, store in airtight containers.
To enhance the flavor of the truffle, sauteè with alpine butter and grated medium-aged Parmigiano Reggiano.
