Whilst this dish may seem more American than Italian, having become a somewhat scorned staple across the pond, we have been led to believe that macaroni cheese has more than a little heritage in Italia. Legend has it that Thomas Jefferson introduced the classic macaroni and cheese to America following a jaunt in Italy, and it is said that his daughter, Mary Randolph, served macaroni cheese as her signature dish when playing hostess. Whilst she favoured rich Italian cheeses for companionship with her pasta twirls, over the years it has become more common to use Cheddar cheese in this hearty symbol of America.
Paying homage to Mary, we incorporate Italian cheese into our sauce before combining with Cheddar and Emmental. The rest, as you’ll very well see, is a sumptuous formaggio blanket for our fresh macaroni. We’ve also elevated this classic dish to new heights with black truffle shavings and a glug of truffle oil, offering you a taste of Piemontese cuisine at its finest. Foraged for centuries by locals across the region and their trusted truffle-hunting hounds, these magnificent morsels, with their rich, earthy flavour, are a fantastic addition to the classic macaroni cheese. Be transported to the dense woodland that adorns the shores of Lago di Mergozzo, a natural beauty spot in the northern corner of Piedmont, and get cozy chalet-style with a plate of this supremely cheesy concoction.
