TRUFFLE MAC N CHEESE

Winter in Australia is a time for amazing food and of course its truffle season! We have a fantastic & indulgent Mac N Cheese recipe that features the famous black perigord truffles from the cool climate of Western Australia’s pristine Manjimup region paired with the deliciously nutty and complex Comte cheese.

  2. Melt butter over a gentle heat in a medium sized pan, add flour and stir to combine. Gradually add milk and continue to stir over a medium heat until the béchamel sauce begins to thicken, check seasoning and adjust with salt & pepper.
  3. Remove pan from heat, stir in half of the grated comté & grate a few slivers of truffle into the sauce.
  4. Divide sauce between each ramekin and top with extra comté.
  5. Bake for 15-20 mins in the oven at 180C until the top of sauce is golden brown and the cheese is bubbling on top.
