The sprawling forests of Piedmont, nestled in the foothills of the Alps, are a sight to behold. Acres of woodland and sprawling lakes make this region a hotspot for avid hikers and adventurers. However, Piedmont’s best-kept secret is not its stunning topography but something more sublime still, a specimen that lies just beneath the surface of the forest floor. Truffles. Local truffle hunters know exactly where to look to find these precious morsels in abundance, though they rely on their trusted companions to bring home their haul. Dogs such as the Lagotto Romagnolo make great truffle hunters because of their impressive sense of smell; as puppies, they are trained to sniff out the pungent tubers and relinquish them without complaint.
We looked to Piedmont for inspiration when concocting our take on the Italo-American classic: Mac & Cheese. We’ve layered some of our favourite varieties of cheese into this decadent, creamy dish and added a scattering of sumptuous truffle to honour the rich gastronomic heritage of northern Italy. The final result is irresistible, and we invite you to close your eyes and delve in for a sensory journey through the oak forests of Langhe, perched on the shores of Piedmont’s Lake Maggiore.

- Preheat the oven to 190°C and place a baking tray in the oven.
- Remove the card sleeve from the oven pasta tray, as well as the plastic film. Once you have removed the sleeve and film lid, place the oven pasta, in its card box, directly onto the hot baking tray. Cover the pasta with tinfoil.
- Cook for 20 minutes until piping hot. Remove the pasta from the oven and check it's piping hot. Allow 2-3 additional minutes without the tin foil if you'd like it to crispen up.
- After removing your pasta from the oven, allow it to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Buon appetito!
