Triangoli are a beautiful, triangle-shaped ravioli, beloved across Italy but scarcely known outside of il bel paese. This dish holds a well-deserved status as one of the classic indulgent tastes of Italy, with each triangolo filled with black truffles grown in Norcia, an area in southeast Umbria, where they are locally known as trifolati and prized for their incredible aroma. There are three regions known for truffle hunting other than Umbria: Piemonte, Toscana and Marche. As truffles grow underground with no visible surface markings, pigs or dogs are used to unearth the truffles, employing the animals’ strong sense of smell. While pigs were traditionally used for truffle hunting, dogs have now replaced them in popularity. Why, might you ask? Well, dogs are easier to train to give the truffle up, and not enjoy it themselves!
So as not to compromise the truffles' elegance with an inferior accompaniment, we combine the beautiful black truffles with Pecorino, one of Italy's finest and best-known cheeses. Highly regarded for its tangy sharpness, it's the perfect accompaniment for our decadent truffle filling. We finish our triangoli simply with truffle butter and hazelnut crumb. This dish will make you want to head to Umbria go truffle hunting in the countryside!
